Tiwa Savage topped five other African music acts to win the Best African Act category at the 2018 MTV Europe Music Awards.
The 23 year old event was held at the plush Bizkaia Arena in Bilbao- Spain to recognize the most outstanding musical achievements by European music personalities but as well for the biggest musical impressions on Europe worldwide.
And as usual the African interest was in the crunch category where eventual winner, Tiwa Savage, was contesting favourite, Davido, and other top acts such as Fally Ipupa [DRC], Nyashinski [Kenya], Shekinah [South Africa] and South Africa’s Distruction Boyz.
The Nigerian diva’s victory earned her the enviable record of becoming the first female artiste to win the award. She attributed to the victory to the massive support of her fan base and hard work in the year under review.
