Nigeria’s very own Burna Boy won the award for “best international act” at the 2019 BET awards but he was not on stage to accept his Award. Why?
The answer is actually quite simple.
Burna Boy who attended the award ceremony alongside his mother was actually not in the hall when he was announced the winner of the best international act category. He was outside treating himself to a drink.
The revelation was made known by the “Killing Dem” crooner himself when a twitter user GMONEYizME asked him
“Big up @burnaboy – How many awards your Mom gonna collect for you lol”.
And Burna boy replied
“Funny enough I went to Get a drink! I would have collected this one”.
He now joins the likes of Davido, Wizkid, Ice Prince, 2baba, and D’banj as the only winners of the award from Nigeria.
Congratulations to him for winning the award, we wish him the very best.
