In his acceptance speech, Burna Boy resonated the need for Africa to be the centrepiece of the black race. Read him:
”Second time and I appreciate it. I will like to use this opportunity to say that sometime around 1835, there was admission to turn the nation of Africa into a dominated nation. Now is the time to return and go back to the royalty that we were because in order for black lives to matter, Africa must matter.”
