Burna Boy sure made Africa proud last night as he emerged the winner of the Best International Act at the BET Awards.
The event which held in Los Angeles saw the singer turn up with his mum and girlfriend Stefflon Don. Their outfit to the event are currently trending on Nigerian social media sphere.
Though Burna Boy was at the event, he however didn’t mount the stage to receive his award. The award was accepted on his behalf by his mum who received loud cheers as she gave her speech.
“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, I believe, would be that every black person should please remember that you were Africans before you became anything else”.
Report say Burna didn’t mount the stage to receive the award because he had to leave for another event taking place same night.
This reminds us of how his mother helped him receive the Souncity awards for Artist of the Year, Listeners Choice, Song of the Year and Best Male MVP back in January while he was abroad.
