There's no doubt that Tiwa Savage is one of the biggest female artists in Africa. Tiwa is so big that even Ciara couldn't deny that she sampled Tiwa's song 'Before Nko' for 'Freek Me'. Tiwa is also signed under Jay Z's oc Nation management and that's a big deal. The Mavin records first lady, earned a major award over the weekend.

Tiwa walked away with the 'Best African Act' at the 2018 MTV European Music Awards held in Bilboa, Spain. She was up against fellow Nigerian Davido, Distruction Boyz and Shekhinah, Fally Ipupa and Kenya's Nyashinski.
