Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage dedicates EMAs award to “girls with dreams”

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.
