Burna Boy Won 'Best African Act' at the MTV Europe Awards

The artist also performed a history-making sold-out show at London's Wembley Arena over the weekend.

From releasing his hit album African Giant to performing at Coachella, Burna Boy has already had a stellar 2019, and it's only getting better. Over the weekend, the artist added to his list of major wins by claiming the Best African Act award at the MTV Europe Awards which took place in Seville, Spain.

He beat out the likes of Nasty C, Teni the Entertainer, Togo's TooFan, Harmonize and Prince Kaybee to earn the award. Last year, it went to fellow Nigerian artist Tiwa Savage, who was the first female act to win the award. This marks the fourth year in a row that a Nigerian artist has claimed the title.
