Davido During His BET Awards Speech: "Come to Africa"
The Nigerian artist won Best International Act at this year's BET Awards, while Black Panther took Best Movie.
The Nigerian singer, who's landed major hits lately with "Fia," "If," and "Fall," took the time during his speech to urge people to come to Africa and to collaborate with African artists.
"I'm telling you guys, y'all come to Africa, eat the food, wear the clothes," he mentioned from the stage. "My continent has been so blessed to influence other cultures. Let's collaborate everybody," he also said.
Before beginning his speech, Davido also payed homage to D'banj, who reportedly just tragically lost his one-year-old son.
"Before I go on, I want to send condolences to my big brother, the actual artiste that paved the way for us to be on this stage, Dbanj my condolences I wish you. You're my brother."
Davido beat out the likes of Tiwa Savage, J Hus, Stormzy, Cassper Nyovest and Fally Ipupa to win the Best International Act award.
Also at the awards, Black Panther took home the Best Movie trophy. Michael B. Jordan and Ryan Coogler thanked Black Twitter for the win.
