Afro-pop singer Tiwa Savage snatched the record-breaking award at the 2018 MTV EMAs, edging Davido, South Africa’s Distruction Boyz and Shekinah; Kenya’s Nyashinski and Fally Ipupa from the DRC.
Until Tiwa’s win, three Nigerians had taken the award home including 2Baba in 2005, D’banj in 2007 and 2012; and Davido in 2017.
Celebrating the feat, the Mavin record Queen took to her Instagram page to dedicate the win to African women and aspiring young girls.
