Burna Boy, Tobe Nwigwe, others shine at the 2020 BET Awards

By Ezenduka Ebuka Murphy | Deythere.com

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.


Roddy Ricch and Megan thee Stallion were among the top winners of the night, taking away the Song of the Year and Hip Hop Artist of the Year awards respectively.

Other winners this year include Drake, Beyoncé, Stormzy, Future, Pop Smoke, and Master P, who received this year’s I Am Hip Hop Award from Snoop Dogg.
