The award ceremony is currently going on at the Bilbao Exhibition Center, in Bilbao, Spain.
Miss Ojeifo who was selected among four others was however missed on the red carpet, as she could not secure a Schengen Visa from the Spanish embassy in Nigeria to embark on the trip.
Her award category was presented during the MTV EMA red carpet pre-show.
The award aims to elevate and empower the fearless, original young people who are changing the world.
Ojeifo was selected alongside a 21-year old Afghanistan, Sonita Alizadeh; 17 year old Lebanese, Mohamad Aljounde; 20 year old Briton, Ellen Jones and an 18 year old Xiuhtezcatl “X” Martinez.
