The African act category, in 2005, was infused into the MTV EMA to enhance musical alliances across borders, and promote cultural integrations. 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. In 2018, Tiwa was nominated alongside fellow Nigerian act, David Adeleke, aka Davido; South Africa’s Distruction Boyz and Shekinah; Kenya’s Nyashinski and Fally Ipupa from the DRC. Celebrating the award, Tiwa took to her Instagram page @tiwasavage to dedicate the win to African women and aspiring young girls. She said, “Almighty God, you are so faithful. My savage soldiers did it for me. “You have stuck with me through the roller coasters. Thank you. To my amazing team, this is just the beginning. African women, this is for us. “I have been through a lot but I have kept my head up and weathered the storm because I know some little girl somewhere is dreaming like I did,” Tiwa said.

She scooped four awards, winning “Best Song,” “Best Artist,” “Best Video” and “Best U.S. Act” in a show that featured a stellar performance from Janet Jackson. Cabello, 21, who already led the pack at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, urged her fans in the United States to vote in the 2018 midterm elections as she walked the red carpet in the northern Spanish city of Bilbao, Reuters reported. The singer, who rose to fame as a member of the girl group “Fifth Harmony,” formed on the U.S. edition of the X-Factor, said she relished being seen as a role model. “I feel like the message for me has always been just like do what makes you happy, even if it’s scary, it’s worth it to take the risk because your happiness is your responsibility,” Cabello said. “That’s always been my message and I talk about it a lot but I feel like it’s a good message. And yes, very important, go vote!” she said. Here’s the full list of 2018 MTV EMA winners: BEST ARTIST Camila Cabello BEST VIDEO Camila Cabello – “Havana” ft.
