For becoming the first Nigerian artiste to win the BET Awards and the Best International Act for the second consecutive year, Nigerians on social media have decided to shower praises and hail Burna boy for proving that he is truly the Giant of Africa.
The BET Awards were established in 2001 to celebrate yearly African-Americans and other American minorities in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment.
When Burna Boy declared himself an African giant, he probably wasn’t channeling his Nigerian past, when it was truly believed that as a society, Nigerians are superior in any regard. Thankfully, all notions of that has been lost as Nigeria has continued to mint poor people in alarming droves.
See how some Nigerians are reacting to this big win on twitter;
