Nigeria’s Burna Boy has been acclaimed as the best international act at last night’s BET awards in Los Angeles making it the fourth time he has won the award.
This time he was up against the likes of South Africa’s Ko and Britain’s Stormzy and Central Cee.
Cameroon’s Libianca won in the best new international act category chosen by BET viewers.
Her song People (Check On Me) has been streamed more than 320 million times since December. It sat on the top of the UK’s Afrobeats chart for eight weeks and got into the UK’s official Top 10 – a first for an artist from Cameroon.
