Tiwa Savage Is The First Woman To Win The MTV EMA ‘Best African Act’ Award
So if it hadn’t occur to you that the MTV EMA ‘Best African Act’ Award has always been cultured to men, we are letting you know that straight away! However, the mourn is over for the females, thanks to the super diva, Tiwa Savage who’s made boss feminist moves even though she doesn’t believe in it.
It goes without saying that Tiwa Savage is one of the biggest musicians out of Africa. She has put in the work in her career so it’s only right for her to sweep awards all year round.
Tiwa Savage has once again changed the game as she is now the first woman to ever win the MTV EMA ‘Best African Act’ Award. Over the years, this award has always gone to men– D’banj, Sauti Sol, Wizkid, Davido and a bunch of others. Although Yemi Alade came close to breaking this record when she was nominated in 2015, Tiwa actually brought home the award this year – so shoutout to these women for being the best at what they do.
