While Receiving the award, Burna Boys’ mom said;
He must be the most restless person I ever met, he was here right now.
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. Thank you!
