WATCH: Burna Boy honours victims of SARS brutality at BET Hip Hop Awards

0

Burna Boy, an Afrofusion singer, has dedicated his performance at the 15th annual BET Hip Hop Awards to Nigerians who lost their lives to the disbanded special anti-robbery squad (SARS).

On Tuesday night, the ‘Ye’ crooner delivered a powerful yet politically-charged performance of ‘Monsters You Made’ — a track he released in August — and was joined by Coldplay’s Chris Martin via remote vocals on the hook.

As the song ended, Burna Boy, alongside his band, raised their fists in solidarity as he paid tributes to “innocent Nigerians killed by SARS.

“This is for Tiamiyu Kazeem. This is for Kolade Johnson,” he said.

“This is for everyone that has lost their lives at the hands of SARS and all kinds of police brutality. End police brutality now and end profiling.”

Monsters You Made’, which addresses the issues of corruption, bad governance, slavery and exploitation in Africa, is a track off ‘Twice As Tall’, Burna Boy’s latest album.
