Nigerian singer Burna Boy’s performance at the 15th annual BET Hip Hop Awards has got people talking. The Nigerian artiste performed his single Monster You Made with English singer Chris Martin and it talked about putting an end to police brutality. The first scene of the video showed a crowd protesting with people holding placards in their hands.
Burna Boy and Coldplay’s Chris Martin perform at BET HIP HOP Awards. The video also featured the voice of Ghanaian author Ama Ata Aidoo and as she spoke, Burna Boy and his dancers stood with their fists in the air as they called for an end to police brutality.
The performance was followed by a list of innocent Nigerians killed by SARS. As expected, Nigerians had something to say about the singer’s performance.
In other news, it was reported that Burna Boy apologised over his tweet saying Oyigbo, Obigbo were under attack by herdsmen. In his apology post, the popular Nigerian musician said that he does not have any harmful intention by what he said.
Burna’s tweet was a quoted response to a Twitter user, Abubakar Hidima, who called him out over the insensitivity of his tweet.
The Anybody crooner called Abubakar his brother and that he loves him, pleading with him not to be offended by his post. He blamed his early tweet on hurt, anger, confusion, and fear that everyone is in as a result of the recent developments in the country.
