The celebrated Cameroonian trio X Maleya failed to clinch the Best African artist category at the Trace Urban music Awards. The award was given to Congolese superstar Fally Ipupa who scored more votes worldwide. The award ceremony took place yesterday May 14th at Trianon, France. The group has been unlucky to grab any international award to their honour . Remember the group made an abortive attempt at the Kora Awards last year.
