We are proud of Burna Boy — The Nigerian singer won The Best International Act at 2020 BET Awards and we can’t help but to pour out our emotions.
This making it his second consecutive year, Burna Boy was able to beat other top music stars; Innoss’B (DRC), Sho Madjozi (South Africa), Dave (UK), Stormzy (UK), Ninho (France), and S.Pri Noir (France).
Naomi Campbell presented Burna Boy his award at the first-ever virtual BET Awards which was held on Sunday night.
Burna Boy said: “I’ll like to use this opportunity to say that sometime around 1835, there was a mission to turn Africa into a dominated nation.”
“Now is the time to overturn that and go back to the royalty that we were, because, in order for black lives to matter, Africa must matter”.
