With the worldwide recognition that Nigerians have been getting this year, you would agree that it is such a beautiful time to be Nigerian (we know what you’re thinking, but just hear us out!).
Our very own Billionaire Sugar Mummy, Teni Makanaki and The African Giant, Burna Boy will be representing us at the MTV European Music Awards which holds at the FIBES Conference and Exhibition Centre in Seville, Andalusia, Spain, on Sunday, November 3, 2019.
These superstars have been nominated for Best African Act alongside Toofan, Prince Kaybee, Harmonize, and Nasty C.
Burna Boy and Teni’s nominations are well deserved and we’ll tell you why!
Over the past 48 months, Burna Boy has been one of the biggest artists in Nigeria. He stormed the music scene in 2010 and eventually worked his way to the top in a few years, carving a niche for himself. His exceptional sound and eclectic style has made him a music force to be reckoned with at home and abroad and we couldn’t be prouder!
Teni The Entertainer’s impressive growth in the music industry should be studied in schools if we’re being honest. She waltzed into the entertainment industry with her funny videos and freestyles on Instagram and finally came into limelight after she released her single, ‘Fargin’. Since she came into stardom, Teni has continued to create more world acclaimed music.
The 2019 MTV EMAs will be hosted by superstar Becky G and will see performances from top artists like Akon, Ava Max, Dua Lipa, Green Day, Halsey, Mabel, NCT 127, Niall Horan and Rosalia. Additionally, Sofia Reyes with Jhay Cortez and Pabllo Vittar and will treat fans to performances during the Red Carpet Pre-Show.
So let’s say you can’t make it to Spain on such short notice, the 2019 MTV EMAs will be broadcast on MTV Africa (DStv channel 130) from 21:00 CAT. In other words, we’ve got you covered!
