Burna Boy Wins 2020 BET Award For Best International Act


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.

American comedian, Amanda Seales, hosted the awards.

It was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and was simulcasted via CBS.

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.”

This win is the Port Harcourt-born singer’s second consecutive BET: Best International Act win. Last year he was nominated alongside Mr Eazi, AKA, Dave, Giggs, Dosseh and Aya Nakaruma.

The ceremony paid tributes to Kobe Bryant, Little Richard and featured performances by Alicia Keys, Chloe x Halle and Megan Thee Stallion among others.
