For the third time in a row, Burna Boy took him the plaque after he was named the winner at the 2021 BET Awards on Sunday, June 27, 2021 at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
The 29-year-old beat fellow Nigerian singer Wizkid, Diamond Platnumz from Tanzania and other artistes to win the award.
He was present at the ceremony and collected the award himself after he missed the opportunity in 2019.
“I made it this time to collect my award myself,” he said before he taught the audience a bit of Pidgin English.
“I want to teach you guys a little bit about where you are all really from,” he said with his mum standing beside him before urging them to speak a phrase in Pidgin English.
“Three-peat, that’s my third one, back to back,” he said in a video on BET’s social media page.
Meanwhile the singer recently received his plaque for winning an award at the Grammy.
