Our very own 21st century Fela, Burna Boy, won big at the Soundcity MVP Awards on Sunday, January 6th. The "Ye" singer clinched four awards at the ceremony. Burna Boy won the 'African Artiste of the Year', 'Song of the Year', 'Listeners Choice' and 'Best Male Artist'.
He was absent at the event but sent his mother as his representative and boy, did she represent? Mama Burna not only showed up but was the number one trending topic on Twitter.
After Burna Boy was called, she bounced on stage with the team to accept the award. Giving us fashion and beauty goals, she eloquently presented her acceptance speech which she ended with, "2019, expect more madness".

Nigerians have come out to 'stan' Burna Boy's mother for her original and are already calling her the mother of the year.
Burna Boy’s mum legit came to collect his award and she said “thank you for 2018. 2019, expect more madness”. Like mother like son #SoundCityMVP— BMAX (@OfficialBmax) January 6, 2019
If you look further into Mama Burna life, she will not have lots of friends. Her typical Nigerian friends would have pressured her into fighting her naughty son into submission. Bless up mama pic.twitter.com/IFfFpgTHAE— Wándé T. Àjàyí (@AjayiOlawande) January 6, 2019
