History repeated itself on Monday as Burna Boy emerged winner of his category at the BET awards.
BET awards 2020 was presented virtually due to the current pandemic. And it was history repeating itself for Nigerian hitmaker Burna Boy. He won for the second consecutive time the Best international act award ahead of Stormzy, Sho Madzjozi, and other acts.
Industry players around the continent shared in the joy of the African giant on social media avenues.
«Thank you very much, BET. The second time, I appreciate it. I’d like to use this opportunity to say sometime in 1835 there was a mission to turn Africa, the nation of 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. Thank you very much, I appreciate it » Burna Boy said in his acceptance speech in the same video Naomi Campbell made the presentation.
His counterpart Wizkid was also a winner on the occasion.
