From video screens projecting images of “living portraits” and paint flowing – to this year’s host getting spray-painted live on stage, the 2018 MTV Europe Music Awards were high on artistic theatrics in a tribute to this year’s location, the culturally rich Spanish city of Bilbao.

Women ruled the EMAs

There is no doubt that women ruled the roost at this year’s EMAs.

Tiwa Savage made history by becoming the first African female to hold up the Best African Act trophy since its inception at the awards 13 years ago while Havana star Camila Cabello took home the lioness’ share of the awards with a hefty four trophies.

“It’s a huge moment, it is history. I am so excited and thankful to my fans for supporting me,” said Tiwa in an exclusive interview after she was named the winner, beating off stiff competition from SA’s pop princess Shekhinah.

“(Tiwa) is truly deserving of this award which is an affirmation of how consistent, commitment and hard work leads to success,” said executive vice president and managing director for Viacom International Media Networks Africa, Alex Okosi.
