Davido has emerged as the Best African Act at the 2017 MTV European Music Awards.


The FIA singer was announced the winner of the category on Sunday in London.

Davido was nominated alongside Babes Wodumo (South Africa) C4 Pedro (Angola), Nasty C (South Africa), Nyashinski (Kenya) and Wizkid (Nigeria).

Wizkid was initially named the winner of the award in 2016 but it was later transferred to Tanzanian singer, Alikiba, after the organisers admitted their error.


The 2017 MTV EMA ceremony is currently ongoing.

Taylor Swift leads the pack with six nominations while Ed Sheeran and Kendrick Lamar are tied with four nominations each.

Sheeran, Lamar, Swift, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and Shawn Mendes are in contention for the Best Artist award which will be replacing the Best Male and Best Female categories this year.


The 2017 MTV EMAs is being broadcast live around the world from The SSE Arena, Wembley.
