The MTV Europe Music Award (commonly abbreviated as the EMAs) according to Wikipedia, is an award presented by Viacom International Media Networks (the founders of MTV) to honour artists and music in pop culture. Although the award was primarily created to celebrate musical talents in the European continent, the MTV EMAs also accommodates musicians from other regions including Africa, which was incorporated in 2005.
In the Best African Act category of the award which seeks to recognize trailblazers in Africa’s vibrant music scene, Nigeria has been duly represented. Matter of factly, the MTV EMAs has recognized the African continent in ten editions, and Nigerians have snug the award five times out of ten including Tiwa Savage’s historic win as the first African female artiste.
Below is a list of every Nigerian artiste that has won the MTV Europe Music Awards in the Best African Act category from 2005 till date.
