Black Entertainment Awards (BET) released their nominations a few days ago and one category seems to be causing so much wahala.
BET Best International Act: Africa category may be the headache of the organizers this year since it seems to be causing so much problem since the nominations came out.
The artist nominated includes Stonebwoy, Wizkid, Tekno, Mr. Eazi, Davi, AKA, Nasty C and Babes Wodumo.
Already Ghanaians are having a hard time accepting the Stonebwoy nomination considering the fact that Shatta Wale is the biggest artist in Ghana now.
Well, Nigerians too have their issues. Ayo Balogun popularly known us Wizkid has rejected the nomination with the excuse that it’s an insult to his brand.
According to the Nigerian artist who bases mostly in the United States now, he feels insulted with the nomination. He claims putting him in the category of International act limits his potentials and underrate his brand.
In an interview with FNN US, Wizkid said:
“Like how can they put me in the same category as typical Nigerians. Like I am an international artist even though I am from Nigeria. I have also won this award before.These people need to get it right or else I am not interested in their award.”
I don’t know the kind of category Wizkid expected to be placed in…lol
Maybe he will be comforted with his 7 nominations from Billboard Music Awards
