The BET award is an annual award show that was created in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television, an American cable television channel which targets the African American audience.
The BET award was primarily created to honour African Americans who are into music and performing arts generally, however, the BET awards now accommodate black people from all continents.
Burna Boy’s latest win for Best International Music Act has sparked a lot of congratulations and respect as it’s the third time in 3 consecutive years. He was nominated alongside Aya Nakamura (France), Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania), Emicida (Brazil), Headie One (Uk), Wizkid (Nigeria), Young T & Bugsey (Uk) and Youssoupha (France)
Prior to the award, Wizkid had the most awards from BET(2), however, Burna Boy has just broken that record, and a lot of Wizkid’s fans don’t seem very pleased with this, some say Wizkid was robbed. However, these reasons should prove otherwise.
Burna Boy came to the limelight after the release of his song “Like To Party” in 2012, his unique pattern of music and song composition hasn’t changed, however, it has continued to improve, and this has little to do with the beats.
Burna’s lyrics always seek to tell a story about something, someone or some situation and this is basically what music should be, rather than lyrics that center around a woman’s body.
2. Warner Music
There’s no disposing the capabilities of the other artistes nominated in the same category, Burna Boy is definitely surrounded by a team of people who know what exactly to do.
3. His Albums
Just like we established earlier, Burna Boy has a track record of great albums with international recognition like the Grammy’s. One of such albums is the “Twice as Tall” album which followed “African Giant” album which was released in 2019 making him the first Nigerian artiste with back to back nominations at the Grammy’s.
Burna Boy has a track record of greatness and it’s no surprise he has won Best International Act again. Share your thoughts in the comments section.
