Nigeria and Africa’s diva and one of the most sorted after celebrity/ singer/songwriter, Tiwa Savage dusted Davido to become this year’s MTV’s Best African Act.
One More Victory For Girls With Dreams
Tiwa Savage, not new to winning awards but becoming the first female African act and the best in an industry dominated by men, is such an historical event to be talked about for a very long time.
Davido, who won the BET awards recently was likely to win also the MTV Europe Music Awards but Tiwa‘s rising up to the occasion by winning it was long overdue.
Apparently with her music background, she is the first to have a well rounded and established career long before big acts like Wizkid, Davido and Dbanj could ever dream of breaking out into the limelight. From doing backup singing to penning lyrics for acclaimed acts like Fantasia Barrino‘s Grammy-nominated album, ‘Back to me’.
With her work ethic and drive in giving Afrobeat a name amongst other world recognised genres, it doesn’t come as a surprise with her picking awards here and there. –Roc Nation can attest to her qualities.
After winning the much coveted award, she has this to say
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.
