0

Celebrated African diva and pop star Tiwa Savage made history on Sunday as she became the first Nigerian female artist to win the ‘Best African Act’ award at the
MTV Europe Music Awards (MTV EMAs).

Tiwa was up against stiff competition from fellow Nigerian act Davido, South Africa’s Distruction Boyz and Shekinah, Kenya’s Nyashinski and Fally Ipupa from the
DRC.

The African act category, in 2005, was introduced at the
MTV EMAs to enhance musical alliances across borders, and promote cultural integrations.

I’ve been through a lot but I’ve kept my head up and weathered the storm because I know some little girl somewhere is dreaming like I did.

Celebrating her award, Tiwa took to Instagram, where she thanked her fans and dedicated the award to ‘girls with dreams’.

‘‘I’ve been through a lot but I’ve kept my head up and weathered the storm because I know some little girl somewhere is dreaming like I did,’‘ read part of Tiwa’s post.

The biggest winner of the MTV EMAs held on Sunday at the Bilbao Exhibition Center, Bilbao, Spain was 21-year-old Camila Cabello who took home the ‘Best Song’, ‘Best Artist’, ‘Best Video’ and ‘Best U.S. Act’ accolades. (HOWAFRICA)
