We reported earlier that Nigerian musician, Damini Ogulu professionally known as Burna Boy won the Best International Act for the second consecutive year, becoming the first Nigerian artiste to win the BET Awards back to back.
The Grammy nominee floored Innoss’B (DRC), Sho Madjozi (South Africa), Dave (UK), Stormzy (UK), Ninho (France), and S.Pri Noir (France) to scoop the gong at the first-ever virtual BET Awards which held on Sunday night.
British supermodel, Naomi Campbell presented the Best International Act award to Burna Boy, who gave his acceptance speech virtually due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Industry colleagues and counterparts, both in-country and continent have taken to their official social media handles to congratulate the self-crowned African Giant.
Some of the Nigerian celebrities who congratulated him are comedian; Basketmouth, singer; Korede Bello and DJ Spinall.
Among African celebrities are South Africa’s Master KG and Ghana’s M.anifest.
