Tiwa Savage: beats Davido, others at the MTV Europe Music Awards

Tiwa Savage was the only Nigerian winner at the MTV Europe Music Awards held Sunday night at the Bizkaia Arena, Bilbao, Spain.

She won the ‘Best African Act’ category, beating the competition that included Davido, Distruction Boyz (South Africa), Fally Ipupa (DRC), Nyashinnski (Kenya) and Shekinah (South Africa).

Tiwa was effusive in her thanks to God for making the honour possible, in a post on her Instagram page: Almighty God, you ARE so faithful. My savage soldiers you did this for us. You’ve stuck with me through the roller coasters, THANK YOU
To my amazing team, this is just the beginning.
African Woman, this is for US. 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.”

However, Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello was the top winner at the awards, with “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.

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.

Jackson, who received a “Global Icon” award, sang hits of her 40-year career over four stages and surrounded by African drummers, flame torches, firebreathers and more than 20 dancers.

The show took place at Bilbao’s exhibition center and was hosted by Hailee Steinfeld, who performed “Back to Life,” a song that will feature on the soundtrack of her forthcoming movie Bumblebee.

One of the hits of the night was Spanish Flamenco-inspired artist Rosalia singing “Malamente” after rolling on stage in a gigantic truck.

Five-time winners of MTV Europe Music Awards, English rock band Muse also made a splash by performing “Pressure” from Bilbao’s world-famous soccer stadium San Mames.

Other notable performances included Bebe Rexha singing “I’m a Mess” while in a bathtub surrounded by nurses and 100 dancers and Halsey performing “Without Me” surrounded by rainfall.

The show was opened by Nicki Minaj with her new hit “Good Form,” followed by her collaboration with Little Mix “Woman Like Me.” Minaj also received the awards for “Best Look” and “Best Hip-Hop.”

American D.J. Marshmello, who won “Best Electronic,” closed out the night alongside Anne-Marie with their hit “FRIENDS” and alongside Bastille with “Happier.” The performance was also among the public as hundreds of Marshmello inflated balls flooded the venue for the finale.

Other winners included Dua Lipa, who took the “Best Pop,” Shawn Mendes who won “Best Live” and 5 Seconds of Summer who received “Best Rock.”

2019 Presidential Poll: Make me your Vice President – Duncan Mighty begs Sowore

Published

Duncan Mighty

Duncan Mighty


Nigerian popstar, Duncan Mighty has given reasons he should be chosen as presidential running mate to Omoyele Sowore of the Action Alliance Congress, AAC.

The singer and record producer expressed interest in being mate to Sowore, adding that Rabiu Ahmed Rufai, who currently occupies the position, is not doing enough on the campaign front.

Sowore’s vice presidential candidate, Rufai is a doctor and public health expert, and by virtue of his profession, Duncan Mighty feels he should be educating Nigerians on how the country’s healthcare system can be revamped.

The singer said on Instagram, “Nigeria needs solution experts who are able to go into the street.
“A man like Sowore needs a man like Duncan Mighty to tell him whatever you say can be done.

“Someone was telling me that Sowore already has a vice-presidential candidate and I went to his page and realised that this guy is a doctor and he has only 15 posts of pictures.
“He is supposed to let us know, as a doctor, that Nigeria should be the leading health nation.

“Nigeria should be that nation where everybody from outside should come have the best healthcare. For this reason, I will demand a debate.
“It is high time we realise that it is not only when Mr President travels that the vice-president should work.

“Go to Sowore’s page, you will realise that he has over 543 posts concerning how Nigeria is going to get better.”
