Burna Boy, Rema Listed Among BET Awards 2020 Nominees

Two Nigerian singers have been announced as part of the nominees for the Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards 2020.

The Nigerian nominees are Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy and Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema.

In the BET Awards 2020 Nominees list released on Monday, June 15, Burna Boy was nominated under the Best International Act, while Rema got nominated under the Best New International Act category.

You will recall that Burna Boy won the Best International Act category at the 2019 BET Awards, where his manager and Mother, Bose Ogulu made a mind-blowing acceptance speech.

Burna Boy got nominated alongside South African singer Sho Madjozi, Stormzy, Dave, Ninho and S.Pri Noir from France.

Meanwhile, in the Best New International Act category, Rema was nominated alongside Zimbabwe’s Sha Sha, Celeste, Young T and Bugsey from the UK and France’s Hatik and Stacy.

However, Drake got six nominations, including Best Male Hip Hop Artist and Video of the Year followed by Megan Thee Stallion and Roddy Ricch, who each received five nominations.
