BET AWARDS

Before 2018, BET Awards used to present awards to African artistes backstage, or in front of an empty audience, hours before the main show starts. 

Wizkid forced BET to stop that disrespect of African artistes. In 2017, Wiz won “BET Best International Act”. He refused to show up for the event, & even called them out, & blasted them in an interview: “This is why I don’t go to the shows mehn”.

In the following year when Davido won, the award was presented to him at the main show in front of real audience. Ever since then, African artistes have been receiving same treatment as their American counterparts at the BET Awards.
