Burna Boy to perform with Coldplay’s Chris Martin at 2020 BET Hip-Hop Awards ceremony

Nigerian musician, song writer and two-time recipient of Black Entertainment’s (BET)  Best International Act award and MTV Europe Music Award’s Best African Act, Burna Boy, has been announced as a performer for the 2020 BET Hip-Hop Awards Ceremony.

He is to mark his first-ever live performance with Coldplay’s Chris Martin on their powerful collaboration in the track “Monsters You Made,” taken off Burna’s fifth studio album, TWICE AS TALL. ‘Monsters You Made’ is a song that serves an indictment on miseducation, historical injustice and systemic racism and Coldplay’s Chris Martin’s hauntingly poignant voice laces through the song, challenging what we think we already know about Africa and her history.

The BET Awards is a yearly event which celebrates creative expression and black excellence across music, film, television, sports, and philanthropy; and so, for Burna Boy and Chris Martin’s forthcoming performance, organisers say this is set to air on Tuesday, October 27, 2020
