People work for money but go the extra mile for recognition, praise, and award. The African Giant did it again! Burna Boy, whose real name is Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu Rex, just won the ‘Best International Act Award’ at BET 2020 Awards. Due to the pandemic, his award was presented by superstar model; Naomi Campbell, via a video call.
She also praised the relevance of Afrobeat in the world.
The talented singer was nominated alongside Stormzy, Dave, Innos’B, Shomadjozi, Ninho and, S.PRI NOIR.
This makes it his second consecutive win at the BET Awards as he also emerged winner in the same category in 2019. Burna Boy has become the first artiste with such wins at the BET. The award ceremony was done almost entirely virtually due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. Now, let’s add this one to the long list of accolades that Burna Boy has gotten over the last 12 months.
Congratulations to you Burna Boy!! More wins. Africans are proud to have you as one of the icons of our time. You truly worked for it and deserved it.
