Burna Boy, Tobe Nwigwe, Roddy Ricch and Megan thee Stallion were some of the artistes who took the 15th annual BET Hip Hop Awards by storm .During a show that seemed to focus more on performances than awards, Nigerian star Burna Boy and Nigerian-born Houston spitter Tobey Nwigwe stood out with their performances.
Backed by a full band, Burna Boy gave a powerful performance of “Monsters You Made,” his single with Coldplay’s Chris Martin. While Burna Boy performed in the same place with his band, Chris Martin sang his parts remotely.

In a move that will certainly excite Nigerian youths who are currently embroiled in the battle of their lives against police brutality and state-sponsored intimidation, the performance ended with Burna Boy shouting out to the #ENDSARS movement and standing in front of a list of young Nigerians killed by the infamous SARS.
Tobey Nwigwe kicked off his performance in a theater-in-the-round set with his hit song, “Try Jesus.” Wearing a seemingly bored look and a long shirt with the faces of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and other black people murdered by police officers, you would be forgiven if his sudden transition into a high-octane version of “Eat” shocked you for a few seconds. The excellent performance got even better when he was joined by his wife, Fat, who also bit into “Eat” as hard as her husband.
