Afrobeats artists, Burna Boy and Wizkid are winners in 2020 first-ever Virtual BET Awards. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the awards were awarded virtually and so were the performances. The event was hosted by Amanda Seales and performers included; Lil Wayne, Alicia Keys, Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch, Chloe X Halle, DaBaby, Jay Rock, Jennifer Hudson, Questlove, Nas, Usher, YG, and many more.

​Wizkid’s feature on Beyonce’s ‘Brown Skin Girl’ track won him the BET Her Award category as he currently makes history as the African artiste with the most BET awards win.

For the second time, Burna Boy won the Best International Act Award. He beat Innoss’B, Sho Madjozi, Dave, Stormzy, Ninho, and S.Pri Noir to win the award.

However, Mavin’s Records, Rema, lost the ‘Best New International Act’ category to Zimbabwean artist, Sha Sha.

The best movie of the year went to Queen and Slim, a movie that had Burna Boy’s Afrobeats song, ‘My Money My Baby’ one of the soundtracks of the movie.
