The
award show held last night at the Mediolanum Forum in Assago, near
Milan, Italy. The singer was pictured holding his award as he posed for a

The Tanzania star was up against Nigeria’s Davido
and Yemi Alade, as well as South African rapper AKA and Ivorian
performer DJ Arafat for the title of best act on the continent.

And
the Tanzanian artist went one better and made the African continent
proud when he was pronounced winner of Worldwide Act: Africa/India –
beating Indian star Priyanka Chopra to be crowned the top artist on two
continents.

Justin Bieber showcased his
purpose with an incredible performance of 'What Do You Mean', and was
the biggest winner of the night with five MTV EMAs: he took home Best
Male for a sixth year in a row; won Best Look, Worldwide Act: North
America; Best Collaboration for his work with Skrillex and Diplo on
Where Are You Now; and Beliebers came out in full effect to help him win
Biggest Fans in a heated social vote, with One Direction landing in
second place.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis opened the show with a
high-octane performance of their award-winning song Downtown, which
featured mopeds, travellators and Eric Nally flying high above the
stage.

Later in the evening, they won Best Video for Downtown.

Pharrell
Williams closed the night with a powerful performance of his hit track
Freedom. Afterward, the broadcast cut to Piazza Duomo in central Milan,
where thousands of fans held up a massive 23 x 16 metre ‘Freedom’ flag.
Incorporating national flags from all over the world, the flag
symbolized the birth of a utopian country that knows no borders and
kicked off the MTV Freedom campaign, which seeks to raise awareness,
activism and donations in support of the current refugee crisis.

The
conclusion of the show also included an exciting announcement: the 2016
MTV EMAs will be held in the Dutch city of Rotterdam.
