Burna Boy Could Not Read From A Teleprompter Screen – Video

“Baba no sabi read” – Burna Boy asks Stormzy for help as he couldn’t read on the screen during an award in UK

Grammy Award winner Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, better known by his stage name Burna Boy, seems like a fascinating guy based on a recent video that went viral in the UK showing him giving an award.

In the stage video, Burna Boy and Yasmine Finney were announcing the prize for best independent British designer.

Burna Boy had difficulty reading aloud from the TelePrompTer screen as he presented the award when he first stepped onto the stage.

While some of the passages were dead ends, Burna Boy was able to read the part where he remarked, “This award is for a designer here in the UK whose independent.”

Quick-witted Nigerian Burna Boy called British rapper Stormzy at the UK awards ceremony right away, requesting assistance.

“Come Stormzy, come and help me abeg,” he uttered. Please join me here as I read it.

Stormzy couldn’t resist lending a hand to his friend Burna Boy as they stood side by side on stage to read his lines.

This award is for a designer in the UK whose independent business is at the forefront of creativity and innovation, according to Stormzy.

“And the best independent British designer winner is Wales Bonner,” said Yasmine Finney, the other woman on stage, to wrap up the reading.

Nevertheless, as Wales Bonner took the stage, Burna Boy was presenting her with the award.

In response, Wales Bonner expressed her admiration for Burna Boy and that it meant a lot to her to get the accolade from the Grammy winner.

“I’m such a big fan of Buran Boy, so this means a lot to receive this award from you, so thank you for that,” the woman exclaimed.

In conclusion, she expressed her gratitude for the honor on behalf of the entire team at Wales Bonner.
