Burna Boy & Wizkid Win At 2020 BET Awards

Nigeria was well represented at the 2020 BET Awards as two of its biggest acts clinched plaques at the much-celebrated award ceremony. The self-acclaimed African Giant Burna Boy bested Sho Madjozi, Innoss’B, Dave and Stormzy to clinch the Best International Act for the second time in a row. This is a feat no one else has achieved.

Wizkid, on the other hand, won a joint award for his feature on Beyonce’s ‘Brown Skin Girl’ record with Blue Ivy and Saint Jhn. The empowering single won the BET HER award over Lizzo’s ‘Tempo’, Alicia Keys’ ‘Underdog’ and others. Beyoncé was also honoured with the Humanitarian Award in recognition of her ongoing philanthropic efforts.

Mavin golden boy Rema, however, lost the Viewers’ Choice Best New International Act to Zimbabwean singer Sha Sha.
