#BETAwards2019: Burna Boy's mother steals the show with powerful acceptance speech.

Burna Boy may have won the award for Best International Act at the 2019 BET Awards that held last night but his mum won the hearts of many viewers both home and abroad with her short yet powerful speech.

Though he was at the event with his girlfriend, Stefflon Don, Burna Boy wasn’t available when it was time to receive his award so his mum went on his behalf.

“He must be the most restless person I ever met, because he was here right now,” Burna’s mother said of her son as she accepted his award.

She then gave a short acceptamce speech that was so powerful and moved everyone present.

Speaking with grace and poise, she said: “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 and left the stage.
