He must be the most restless person i ever met, he was here right now. okay, thank you very much BET, em-mm, thank you Africa, because that’s the constituency for which we got noticed in the first place and the message from Burna, i believe would be “That every black person should please remember that you were Africans before you became anything else, Thank you.”
