In his acceptance speech at the Los Angeles entertainment awards ceremony on Sunday evening 28 June, the artist touched on how Africa should be dominating every space.
“Thank you very much BET, second time in a row, I appreciate it,I just want to take this opportunity to say that sometime around 1835, there was a mission to turn Africa and the nation of Africa into the dominating nation.
