The everyday brouhaha of awards in Africa has this time flew beyond the boarders of the Continent, as Wizkid reject his nominations for the BET awards.
Organisers of the Black Entertainment Awards (BET) released their nominations a few days ago and one category seems to be causing so much wahala in this part of our continent.
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 nomination of Stonebwoy 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.
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
