Nigerian-British actor, John Boyega, is among the winners of the 2020 GQ Men Of The Year Awards which held on Thursday night.
28-year-old Boyega was the recipient of GQ’s Icon award.
According to the organizers, “Boyega’s Black Lives Matter speech in June was perhaps at the heart of why he has been named GQ Icon.”
Also, he has been at the forefront of the global campaign to highlight police brutality and extrajudicial killing in Nigeria especially during the #EndSARS protest.
This would be the second time Boyega has won the award.
“I won one in 2016 and, honestly, it’s great for the interior design of my living room that I can balance it out with a second one,” he said in an interview with GQ.
