Nigerian Singer/Songwriter Burna Boy, overnight, bagged  the BET Award for Best International Act at the 2019 BET Awards. He had been nominated for the award alongside UK’s Giggs and Dave, Nigeria’s Mr. Eazi, Aya Nakamura from fans and a couple others.

Burna wasn’t on seat when he was announced winner of the BET Award for ‘Best International Act’ which made his Mum, ‘Mama Burna’ do the honours on her son’s behalf.

Giving a short sermon like she knew her son would have done she said; “Thank you very much BET. Thank you Africa because that’s the constituency for which we got noticed in the first place. And the message from Burna is that every black person should remember that you were Africans before you became anything else.”
