Burna Boy couldn't

Nigerian singer Burna Boy is currently the talk of the internet after an old video of him presenting an award at the 2022 British Fashion Awards resurfaced online.

The self-styled African Giant was invited on stage alongside actress Yasmin Finney to present the award for the Independent British Brand category.

However, Burna Boy had a little trouble reading the words on the teleprompter and had to call on his friend and UK rapper, Stormzy, to read out the words for him.

Thereafter, Yasmin took over and announced Wales Bonner as the proud winner of the award category.

Although the incident took place in 2022, the video has sparked different reactions on social media since it resurfaced on the internet.

While some netizens asserted that Burna Boy seems to be shortsighted due to the way he was squinting his eyes to read the words, others chided him for seemingly embarrassing himself at the event.
