In his acceptance speech, the singer said: “I’ll like to use this opportunity to say that sometime around 1835, there was a mission to turn Africa into a dominated nation.”

“Now is the time to overturn that and go back to the royalty that we were, because, in order for black lives to matter, Africa must matter”.

The 2020 BET Awards, honoring the best in music, movies, TV and more, are happening virtually this year — but the stars are still winning big!

Sunday’s awards show was hosted by comedian and actress Amanda Seales, with performances from stars like Alicia Keys, Chloe x Halle, DaBaby, D Smoke, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Jonathan McReynolds, Kane Brown, Lil Wayne, Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch, SiR, Summer Walker, Usher and Wayne Brady.
