That's because newer versions of EMUI prevent you from booting custom ROMs
I had the same issue
The way i fixed it was i flashed an older EMUI through Dload

Downgrading EMUI


Download this : https://androidhost.ru/1JVE
Extract it and put the dload folder into the root of ur sdcard
Turn off the phone
Press power and vol + & - buttons
Once u see huawei logo stop pressing power but keep doing on volume buttons
It will install


Now that you have downgraded your EMUI , you can unlock your bootloader again , flash TWRP, and flash your favourite ROM!

I hope i helped you ))
