Bet Awards 2021: Burna Boy Beats Wizkid To Win Best International Act (Full Winners List)

The Grammy Award winner, Damini Ebunoluwa, popularly known as Burna Boy, has also bagged the Best International Act award.

He was up against his colleague, Wizkid, Aya Nakamura (France), Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania), Emicida (Brazil).

Other contenders in the Best International Act category were Headie One (United Kingdom), Young T & Bugsey (United Kingdom), and Youssopha (France).

Burna Boy has achieved this latest feat for the third time since 2019 and this is in addition to his Grammy-award win for World Best Music Album in March.

The award was held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday and was hosted by the 6-time BET Best actress winner, Taraji P. Henson.

Megan Thee Stallion dominated the day after carting home four categories in Best Female Hip-Hop Artist; Video of the Year, Best Collaboration for ‘WAP’ through her duet with Cardi B; and a Viewer’s Choice Award for “Savage (Remix)” through her 2020 track with Beyoncé.

For the legendary Queen Latifah, it was an emotional moment to recognise her parents after bagging the Lifetime award in the company of her father, Lancelot Owens Sr, while holding a photo of her late mother, Rita Owens.

Chadwick Boseman posthumously won the Best Actor while a tribute was given to the late rap legend, DMX.
