MTV Europe Music Award is an award presented by Viacom International Media Networks to honour artists and music in pop culture. It was originally conceived as an alternative to the MTV Video Music Awards, which are hosted annually in the United States.

Distruction Boyz and Shekhinah are nominated in the Best African Act alongside last year’s winner Davido, Fally Ipupa and Tiwa Savage.

“That is such great news! We are super happy and this just shows that gqom is the future,” the group’s Goldmax told TshisaLIVE who broke the news to them.

“We are very excited and all these awards show we are doing really well. We have to believe that we can win and I think we will because the (gqom) movement is so strong,” – he said.

Watch the 2018 MTV Europe Music Awards on Sunday 4 November at 9pm across MTV’s channels.
