At the 15th annual BET Hip Hop Awards, Nigerian artist Burna Boy gave a politically-charged performance of “Monsters You Made,” his single with Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
Burna Boy was backed by a full band while Martin sang his parts remotely. During the performance, footages from the recent EndSARS protest played on and band members who supported Burna Boy all wore shirts with ‘#StopPoliceBrutality’.
As the song ended, Burna Boy once again called for an end to police brutality and stood with his associates as they held their fists in the air. The performance was followed by a list of innocent Nigerians killed by SARS.
“Monsters You Made” appears on Burna Boy’s most recent studio album Twice as Tall, which features additional contributions from Stormzy, Youssou N’Dour, Naughty By Nature, and more.
The new LP follows Burna Boy’s 2019 release African Giant.
