Sensational Nigerian artist BNXN, commonly referred to as Buju, had expressed surprise at his victory. When he was revealed as the 2022 Headies Next Rated award winner, he was happily surprised. The performer of “Finesse” defeated industry rivalRuger and others to clinch the prestigious award and walked home with a brand new Bentley BENTAYGA SUV star prize.
He said before the event, he bought himself a car as consolation should he lose out. The singer stated this in a recent interview with Hip TV.
“I was really stunned [winning a Bentley], mainly because I wasn’t expecting it. I thought it would take me a long time to get a Bentley. I just got a car before that award show because I didn’t want to be pressured by losing the car [Bentley] or not. So, I had to buy another vehicle separately to compensate myself.
“But when I won I was really stunned. Even when they shipped it and brought it to Lagos, it was another, ‘Wow! It’s right here.’ I was really excited.”
