Here is some good news, henceforth the winner of the BET Best International Act category would be given his/her award on the main stage.
Prior to this announcement, all former winners of BET Best International Act: Africa usually got their award backstage before the main BET event.
Somehow, top African music stars like Wizkid have frowned about the manner in which the recognition was given to them. It’s clear that such calls for better treatment of African artists have not gone unheard and something has been done to that effect to change things.
Recently, a list of nominees for this year’s BET Awards was announced. Nigerian music stars, Davido, Tiwa Savage were among the nominees for Best International Act: Africa. Other nominees includes South Africa Cassper Nyovest, Destruction Boyz, Fally Ipupa etc.
In a new tweet, BET has announced that a winner in the Best International Act: Africa would be presented the award during the live show.
