Burna Boy was among the main performers at last night’s BET Hip Hop Awards 2020, teaming up with Coldplay‘s Chris Martin for a politically-charged performance of ‘Monsters You Made’.
The Afrobeats star called out police brutality in his native Nigeria during the performance, using powerful visuals to back the #EndSARS campaign, while his band wore shirts that read #StopPoliceBrutality.
Ending the performance, Burna Boy delivered a short monologue to remember the victims of last week’s protests in Lagos’ Lekki Gate – with Amnesty International claiming that at least 12 people were killed after brutal clashes broke out last week.
