BET AWARDS 2020: BEYONCÉ, MEGAN THEE STALLION & BURNA BOY AMONGST THE NIGHT’S BIG WINNERS

The annual BET Awards was extra special this year, not just because 2020 marks its 20th anniversary, but also because it was the first time in history the event was held virtually, due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ceremony seeks to celebrate achievements in entertainment, music, sports, television, film and activism.

Amongst the big night’s performers were Lil Wayne, Alicia Keys, Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch, Usher, DaBaby, Jennifer Hudson and Nas. The prestigious Album of the Year title went to American rapper, Roddy Rich, while Beyoncé was honoured with the BET Humanitarian Award, presented to her by former FLOTUS, Michelle Obama.
