BET Awards 2020: Burna Boy wins Best International Act for the second time in a row (Full list of winners)

Nigerian musician, Damini Ogulu professionally known as Burna Boy, has 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.

In his acceptance speech, the singer said: “I’ll like to use this opportunity to say that sometime around 1835, there was a mission to turn Africa into a dominated nation.”

“Now is the time to overturn that and go back to the royalty that we were, because, in order for black lives to matter, Africa must matter”.

Below is a full list of nominees in each category and their winners;
