How Nigerians reacted to epic speech by Burna Boy’s mum at BET awards

Published

on

The mother of popular Nigerian singer, Burna Boy, Monday morning broke the internet with her acceptance speech at the 2019 BET Awards.

The awards hosted by Regina Hall in Los Angeles, California had Burna boy as the winner of international act category beating the likes of AKA, Mr. Eazi to the award.

Receiving the award on behalf of Burna Boy, who was absent at the event, his mother gave an acceptance speech which earned her a standing ovation, drawing viral reactions on social media.

She had said, “Thank you BET, Thank you, Africa, because that’s the constituency for which we got noticed in the first place.

“The message from Burna, I believe will be that every black person should please remember that you were Africans before you became anything else.”

However, below are some reactions to her speech gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter:

@DjSpinall: “Burna boy’s mum just gave the best speech I have ever heard at an award show!

@Comedynigeria: “Burna boy’s mom is articulate and extremely confident! The speech!

@Salimpedro38: “Thank u mama Burna for this wonderful message, the world has noticed you, you are a true champion.”

@Offiemusic: “I think I am officially a bigger fan of Burna boy’s mother than I am of him. The woman spews so much wisdom anytime she speaks. I honestly think she has more to give us as Africans than just a talented son and for that matter needs a platform to just speak her mind.”

@Peacoko34: “Brief and great speech by Mama Burna.”

@Wildebee: “Mama Burna just ended all the diaspora wars. They’re canceled.”

“Every black person should please remember that you were Africans before you became anything else’ That is class!

@Randzejude: “Congratulations to Africa’s finest Burna boy on winning the Best International Act at the BETAwards2019 last night. Mama Burna stole the show though.

@Kanzaabdul6: “Burna Boy your mama’s speech should have a place in the museum! Iconic.”

@Abdul: “Even if they didn’t introduce her as Mama Burna, all she had to do was open her mouth and speak. same facial expressions and all. And about the bars, now we see where you inherited the heavy ones you drop. Congrats big man Burna.”
