Burna Boy Bet Awards Episode of 2019

The whole Burna Boy Bet Awards experience is one that a lot of music lovers from Nigeria is still holding unto. His name became the headlines of many Nigerian celebrity news blog and we all loved it.

And for the simple purpose of having a piece on this blog for reference sake I have decided to write on the subject.

Currently Burna Boy is the real African Giant and people from all over the globe are really feeling his Afrocentric flow structured upon an immortal Afro beat.

He is among the biggest Nigerian Male Singers in the country and seriously he is to be found at the very top of that list.

They say he carries that Fela personality in his songs and stage performance which is so true.

But we are not surprised that the Fela influence is very strong on him. After all his mother was one of Fela’s girls back in the day.

While his Grand Father Benson Idonije is popularly known for being the first band manager of Afro beat musician Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

That’s a family connect to the Afro beat legend himself that is bound to have a life changing effect in the life of the child that grew up inside of it all.

The Burna Boy Bet Award episode is not the first time a Nigerian would be winning the award, especially in that category.Burna Boy Bet Award

But winning that award for himself was just fate telling us what we already suspected, that Burna Boy is the next phase of Nigerian music in the international scene.

The 2019 BET Awards was held in California, at the Microsoft Theatre. It was the The 19th BET Awards and was held on June 23, 2019.

The event itself was hosted for the first time by actress Regina Hall.

And Burna Boy came out top in the Best International Act category that featured the following acts.

  • Aya Nakamura (France)
  • AKA (South Africa)
  • Dave (UK)
  • Dosseh (France)
  • Giggs (UK)
  • Mr Eazi (Nigeria)

There were even rumors of displeasure on the part of AKA who despite being friends with Burna Boy was not down with a Nigerian winning the award again. Who said celebrities don’t hate?

The 18th edition of the Award night saw Davido winning in the same category.

His mother Bose Ogulu was there to receive the award and in her acceptance speech, Burna Boy’s mum said the message from the singer to every African in diaspora is ‘remember you were first an African before any other thing.

The Burna Boy Bet Awards 2019 is yet another confirmation that Nigerians are really contributing to the growth African music and the world is taking notice.

Others Nigeria celebrities to have won the BET Award include Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, 2Baba and DBanj.

Wizkid is still leading the pack with two BET Awards to his name.
