2face & Dbanj Win BET Award + Pictures


The BET Awards took place last night at the Shrine Auditorium in LA and in a very odd twist our peeps Tuface Idibia and D’Banj won Best International Act For Africa. Nope it wasn’t as a group, but supposedly it was a tie between them. Fally Ipupa (Congo DR) D-Black (Ghana), Angelique Kidjo (Benin), and Teargas (South Africa) were also nominated in that category.

Pretty odd to have a tie, and give the same award to 2 people. But congrats to them both. Nigeria owned that category 🙂
