How Tiwa Savage Poured ‘Pepper Stew’ in Davido’s Eyes and Won MTV Best African Act Award 2018


It is no longer news that Tiwa Savage who was nominated alongside Davido, clinched the MTV EMA Award. However, not many know how she accomplished this enviable feat.

Tiwa beat Davido to win the Best African Act Award 2018 and the reason she poured ‘pepper stew’ in his eyes is not far-fetched. She received massive support from Wizkid and his impressive army of loyal fans.

Moreover, Davido seemed unperturbed while Tiwa and Wizkid’s fans were voting for her. Thusly, the votes from Wizkid’s fans helped her clinch the prestigious Award.

Furthermore, Tiwa Savage has also had a good singing year with hit songs like ‘Diet’, ‘Lova Lova’, ‘Connect’ etc.

Other African acts Tiwa beat to win the award are Sekinah from South Africa, Fally Pupa from DRC, among others.

Mavin’s First lady dedicated the award to her son, fans and her amazing team.
