Burna Boy's mother turn heads with her BET Awards speech after son won | Nigeria Music - GhKings.com

It was another epic moment to turn the spotlight on Africa at the 2019 BET Awards night. Burna Boy‘s mother kept her speech short while hitting the nail on the head.

The Nigerian singer and songwriter Burna Boy won the Best International Act at the 2019 BET Awards. His mother, Bose Ogulu received the award on his behalf and she also delivered an epic speech.

She said,

“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 black person should please remember that you were Africans before you became anything else, thank you.” t

The whole auditorium turned louder while she received a standing ovation.

The 2019 BET Awards night also saw South African singer and performer Sho Madjozi taking home the ‘New Best International Act’ award.

Congrats to Burna Boy and Sho Madjozi! Keep rocking the African flag high!!
