African artists are beginning to react to the lack of respect by BET.
StayBoy Wizkid was nominated in the BET Awards 2015 again for “Best International Act (Africa)” But he decided to boycott the Awards Pre-Shows and Festivities, including conducting interviews and more.
He took to his twitter moments later to address the negligence shown to African artists in the previous edition and that’s still the reason why he is not going to take his award backstage.
Previously, Fuse ODG reacted in same way.
“Dear @BET, the reason why I didn’t come is because you give our awards backstage! You have no respect for our hard work and achievements“
Personally i am impressed with this, they should respect our talents, they work hard even harder than their foreign counterparts.
