2019 MTV EMAs: Burna Boy’s Reign Continues
Burna Boy continues his reign of local and international dominance as the African Giant has just added another feather to his cap.
The ‘Anybody’ crooner is not just anybody but somebody to be reckoned with as he clinched the ‘Best African Act’ at the just concluded MTV Europe Music Awards which held in Seville, Spain last night.
Edging out a number of other notable talents like Teni the Entertainer, Toofan, Prince Kaybee, Nasty C and Harmonize. This win makes him join an exclusive list of Nigerian superstar artistes who have won the much-coveted international honour. Past Nigerian winners of the MTV EMA Best Africa Act award include 2Baba Idibia, D’Banj, Tiwa Savage and Davido.
Alex Okosi, Executive Vice President and Managing Director for Viacom International Media Networks Africa (VIMN Africa) and BET International commented:
“African music continues to make significant contributions to global entertainment and culture. We are proud of and congratulate Burna Boy from Nigeria for winning the Best Africa Act at the 2019 MTV EMA which showcases and celebrates the best talent from the world.”
The “Ye” hitmaker was not present to pick up his award as he was shutting down the United Kingdom for his sold-out concert at SSE Arena. The 12,500-seat facility is London’s second largest indoor arena after the O2 Arena and the ninth-largest in the United Kingdom. He had a representative pick up the award in his stead.
Burna Boy clinching the Best African Act at the 2019 MTV EMA is coming just months after he won the Best International Act at the 2019 BET Awards.
It has indeed been a great year for Burna Boy so far and from the looks of things, it will continue to be as he continues to prove himself as an African Giant.
