Akon Set To Light Up 2019 MTV EMAs Stage As BurnaBoy, Teni Vie For Best African Act Award


Senegalese-American Hip-Hop and R&B sensation Akon will be performing alongside other artists at the 2019 MTV European Music Awards. The global music show which will air live from Spain on November 3, 2019.


The singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, and actor returns to the EMA stage with a total of 36 awards and 95 nominations since the start of his impressive career in 2004. 


Akon was nominated for Best Hip-Hop and Best New Act at the 2005 edition of the EMAs, prior to his 2007 nomination for Best album “Konvicted”, which eventually saw his track “The Sweet Escape” win an award for Best Video.


Best believe Akon has earned the title “Music Icon”, especially in the eyes of his African fans who are super proud of their own and all his achievements.


Given an impressive track record of back to back hit songs like; “lonely”, “locked up”, and “I wanna love you”, fans can’t wait to have the Icon on stage as they expect nothing short of a stellar performance.


Amongst the Africans doing us proud globally are; Burna Boy, Teni, Toofan, Prince Kaybee, Nasty C, and Harmonize, who have all been nominated for “Best African Act” at the 2019 MTV EMAs in Spain.

We can’t tell you for sure what performances to expect from the nominees, but we definitely want to see the African giant “Gbese” on the EMAs stage while Teni tells us how much we all want to be Billionaires.


With so many other international acts and performances lined up, it’s definitely going to be all fireworks in Seville, Spain, come Sunday.
