Burna’s boy mum receives award for son with epic speech
Following Nigerian singer, Burna Boy’s win as the Best International Act at the 2019 BET Awards last night, he was not available at the crucial moment. Though he was at the event with his girlfriend,Stefflon Don, he wasn’t available when it was time to receive his award so his mum went on his behalf.
His mother, Bose Ogulu remarked:
“He must be the most restless person I ever met, because he was here right now”
While receiving the award on his behalf, she gave an epic short acceptance speech.
“Thank you very much BET. Thank you Africa. Because that’s 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.
At this point, a loud cheer went up in the venue.
“Thank you,” she concluded, lifting the award plaque before leaving the stage.
