The 2022 Bentley that the Headies organisers promised to singer Daniel Benson, better known by his stage name BNXN, for winning the Next Rated Artiste category, has now been delivered.
Ayo Animashaun, the head of Headies, made the announcement in an Instagram post where he included images of the singer and himself with the new vehicle.
He wrote in the post’s caption:
“Promise made and kept.”
Additionally, BNXN shared images of the vehicle on his Instagram page.
At the 2022 Headies Award ceremony held last Sunday in Atlanta, United States of America, the 25-year-old was declared the category’s winner.
The Afrobeat artist formerly known as Buju dedicated the victory to his mother, who passed away from cancer, in a post-win statement. He stated:
“I want to thank God he is the reason I’m here, he is the reason I’ve been able to come this far. I dedicate this to my mum, she died of breast cancer this is for you mummy, this is for my family, this is for my management.”
Buju also gave the award to Ruger and Ayra Starr, who were also nominated.
Meanwhile, Anthony Andersen, a super talented actor and comedian, and multitalented Nigerian American actress Osas Ighodaro presided over this year’s Headies awards ceremony at the Cobbs Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, United States.
