Nigerian music star, Burna Boy, has won the 2020 BET Award for Best International Act.
The 2020 BET Awards was held virtually at L.A. Live, Los Angeles, U.S. in the early hours of Monday, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and was simulcasted via CBS. American comedian, Amanda Seales, hosted the awards.
Burna Boy, who was nominated alongside Rema in the same category, beat the likes of Innoss’B (DR Congo), Sho Madjozi (South Africa), Stormzy (United Kingdom), Dave (United Kingdom), Ninho (France) and S.Pri Noir (France) to claim the highly coveted award.
Accepting his award, the African Giant spoke on African development, saying,”Second time and I appreciate it. I will like to use this opportunity to say that sometime around 1835, there was admission to turn the nation of Africa into a dominated nation. Now is the time to return and go back to the royalty that we were because in order for black lives to matter, Africa must matter.”
