The Nigerian reggae-dancehall singer and songwriter won Best International Act at the 2019 BET Awards. His mother, Bose Ogulu, accepted the award on his behalf and delivered a moving speech.


“Thank you very much, BET. Thank you, Africa, because that is the constituency for which we got noticed in the first place, and the message from Burna I believe would be that every person should please remember that you were Africans before you were anything else, thank you,” Ogulu said to the audience.

Congratulations, Burna Boy. Continue doing Africa proud!
