Beyoncé was honoured with the Humanitarian Award, which was proudly presented by the former US first lady Michelle Obama.

While virtually presenting the award, the former first lady said:

No matter how big the stages get, I know my girl isn’t satisfied unless she’s sharing all that shine she has with the next generation. She’s always turning up, looking out, and making us all a little bigger, better, a little more fierce. And she’s doing it all while staying devoted to her children and the loved ones she holds dear. So to my girl, I just want to say, you inspire me. You inspire all of us.

In his acceptance speech, the Afrobeat star said:

I’ll like to use this opportunity to say that sometime around 1835, there was a mission to turn Africa into a dominated nation. Now is the time to overturn that and go back to the royalty that we were, because, in order for black lives to matter, Africa must matter.
