USA: Burna Boy Wins BET Best International Act 2019 Awards

Written by on June 24, 2019

Burna’s Boy’s mother delivered a special message while accepting the honor for “Best International Act” at the BET Awards.

Bose Ogulu, the manager and mother of the Afro-fusion musician accepted the award on her son’s behalf. Ogulu, who has accepted trophies for her son in the past, also came with a quick word for African-Americans.

“Thank you very much BET, thank you, Africa. That is the constituency for which we got noticed. The message from Burna would be that every black person should please remember that you were Africans before you became anything else.”
