Chance The Rapper walked away with a message from Michelle Obama and the prestigious Humanitarian Award, while Beyoncé swept key accolades at the 2017 Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards.

In addition to his prestigious accolade, Chance – who is only 24 – walked away with the awards for Best Collaboration (featuring 2 Chainz), for the song No Problem and Best New Artist.

Chance now becomes the youngest person to ever receive the BET Humanitarian Award.

“It feels a little early to be getting something like this, but my God doesn’t make mistakes”.

Former First Lady, Michelle Obama, also streamed in to give a message of support for the young rapper:

Meanwhile, Beyoncé, who sent a letter of gratitude in absentia – as she is busy nursing her new-born twins – scooped the awards for Best Female R&B/pop artist, Viewers’ Choice award for Sorry, Video of the Year for Lemonade and Album of the year for Lemonade.
