Burna Boy has emerged winner for the Best African Act category at the MTV EMA which took place on Sunday, the 3rd of November 2019 at the FIBES Conference and Exhibition Centre in Seville, Andalusia, Spain.

The African Giant as he is fondly called topped category with contenders such as Teni Entertainer, South Africa’s Nasty C, Tanzania’s Harmonize and Togo’s Toofan Prince Kaybee.

While Burna was being proclaimed the winner of the MTV EMA Best African Act, the afro-fusion artiste was busy shutting down SSE Arena in Wembley, London where he was also recognized for being the first Afrobeat artist to shut down the arena.

You’d remember that the Burna Boy had won the Best International Act at the BET Awards in June 2019.
