Stars Above You singers Locnville have been named as the winners of the Best African Act at the 2013 MTV European Music Awards.
For the past six weeks, MTV has given fans around the world the chance to vote for their favourite hometown artists to help them win the Best Act title in their respective markets.
The duo will now go head-to-head against Yo Yo Honey Singh from India and Ahmed Soultan from the Middle East for the chance to be one of 10 finalists to reach the last round of the Worldwide Act category.
Locnville’s Brian Chaplin said it’s an honour to go through to the next round.
“Everyone has been amazing with voting, so I send huge thanks to everyone who’s put in their vote. I’m really excited to see what comes next.”
The representative for Africa, India and Middle East will be announced on 1 November along with the other regional winners.
Other contenders that had been in the running for the Best African Act award were Mafikozolo, P-Square, Wizkid and Fuse ODG.
Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, Snoop Dogg, Afrojack, Imagine Dragons, The Killers and Katy Perry are all set to perform at the awards ceremony.
