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.”
@IDreyy: “Content no be by talking plenty. Mama Burna didn’t even spend a minute on the mic, but she delivered the most powerful words.”
@Sisinaira: “Burna Boy won Best International Act at BET Awards, Mama Burna came to pick it up and gave a GOAT acceptance speech.
“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.”

BBNaija eviction: ‘I connect with you as my father’ – Omashola begs Biggie, makes demand
DAILY POST recalls that Omashola was nominated for eviction alongside Tacha, Ike and other team members from ‘The Icons’ group.
Omashola, who appeared nervous about likely eviction, begged Biggie on Sunday to call him and check up on him outside the house.
He said this on Sunday during his diary session with Biggie.
He stated that most housemates aside Mike think he is always fine but most times despite being a tough person, he needs a pat on the back.
Omashola however expressed love for Biggie, as he described him as his father.
Omashola told Biggie: “I beg you don’t forget me you get my number one day when the program don finish call me abeg.
“I connect with you as a father, anywhere I am in the world if I hear your voice I go they alright, please just check on me.
“As much as I’m stubborn I want someone to pat me on the back and assure me of my progress.
“So far you are the only one that calms me down, you did a lot in my life.
“Nobody checks on me because I’m strict and they think I’m okay but sometimes I need a pat on my back.
“I love you so much Biggie, would appreciate to see or receive your call after I’m evicted.”
BBNaija: ‘Gedoni does not deserve Khafi’ – Nigerians react to his relationship with Venita
Gedoni and Venita on Sunday night engaged in a deep conversation regarding his relationship with Khafi.
Venita started the conversation after Sunday live eviction show which had Ebuka Obi-Uchendu questioning Khafi about Venita’s stepping into her relationship with Gedoni.
Gedoni approached Venita who was angry at Khafi for discussing her relationship with other housemates.
Venita speaking to him told him she doesn’t care about Khafi and would have him if she feels so.
Gedoni in response hugged Venita and placed a kiss on her cheek.
This development has stirred reactions from BBNaija fans as some accuse Gedoni of playing Khafi while others attacked Venita, describing her relationship with Gedoni as a strategy.
DAILY POST recalls that the BBNaija love-birds ‘Gedoni and Khafi’ had on different occasions been caught in the house having sex.
Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter:
@Harunaharry1 “I feel it would be better if Gedoni and Khafi are best friends and not in a relationship.”
@Bigkenz “You women have to make sure Gedoni goes home when he’s up, you don’t disrespect a woman like that! FUCK BOY Gedoni.”
@Chigoziejason “Its so obvious…Venita has fallen in love with Gedoni,When he kissed her I swear I thought it was on the lips until I saw it was on the cheek.Khafi doesn’t deserve a man like Gedoni.. she needs someone better, I’m beginning to dislike Venitaand I have never liked Gedoni.”
@Rofokofo “Venita is manipulating this Gedoni guy. I don’t think she likes him as much. She calls Khafi’s relationship a situation, she gets Gedoni tensed. She’s almost making him deny Khafi. She’s a strong street girl, and Gedoni is as weak as the Biblical Samson.”
@Beeurily “Venita though she has a way of using her words and Gedoni foolish, is lost in those words. The truth is he doesn’t know what he wants, the guy is confused. Poor Khafi, she accepted Gedoni with her pure heart. If only Khafi can just forget about Gedoni.”
@Indulge_online “Venita told Gedoni dat if she decides to set her compass on him, khafi can’t even stand a chance. Gedoni said he regrets being involved with someone so quick, he should have just maintained his lane.
“Me:Gedoni loves Venita more,Khafi is Naive,Venita is a smart actress.”
@Tosingeorge10 “Biggie pls let Venita remain in the house for a long time, she has a lot to offer. She has not given up on Frodd and now she is about to finger Gedoni’s relationship. The drama will be very interesting though.”
@Davidchibike “Biggie should arrange a boxing stage for Venita and Khafi as an Arena game. The winner will go home with Gedoni .”
@Kayaga_ruth “I think Venita is targeting Khafi because shes the easy one well Venita thinks she’s better than Khafi, forgetting its not always about looks.”
@Ladyrabi “Why is madam Venita having issues with Khafi, Venita is a big drama queen, she is acting her script very well using Khafi as the d villain in her perfect script in Biggie house.”
@Iamwithyou15 “In this season #bbnaija it’s only Khafi that is truly in love with Gedoni, the rest relationships are just for game and to entertain the viewers.”
