While her teeming fans have thronged twitter to congratulate Tiwa savage on this amazing feat, others have attributed her big win to the Wizkid effect on the singer’s brand, especially as her win is off the heels of the ‘Fever’ video, which Ms Savage was featured in.
See some of their reactions below:
Those of you who disrespect @TiwaSavage by saying she is not our biggest female artist or try to compare her to……. should never do it again.
No one comes close.
She is one of our top artists irrespective of gender.
Tiwa Savage beat Davido to Best African Act…y’all think she didn’t know what was she was doing with the Fever Video…imagine having ur fans and wizkid Fc voting for you…
Congrats First Lady #EMA
