Nigeria’s Wizkid Picks Up Best International Act, Africa at 2017 BET Awards

Ahead of the main event tonight ,BET has just announced Wizkid as Winner of the Best International Act – Africa Award in a special ceremony held in Los Angeles.

The Nigerian beat off stiff competition from Davido, Mr Eazi, Tekno, Stonebwoy, Nasty C, Babes Wodumo and AKA. It’s the Starboy’s 2nd win in this category, first taking home the award (alongside Sarkodie) back in 2012.

Tanzanian music star Ray Navvy also won the Best International Viewers’ Choice award.

The 2017 BET Awards will air live on Sunday, June 25 from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at 8 P.M. ET

The Nigerian musician who has over the years registered his displeasure at the awards show was however not present to pick up the award as we are reliably informed that he was involved in another gig elsewhere.

The Best International Act category awards have over the years been filmed a day prior to the main awards show, something many have complain about as being unfair and described it as backstage awards.

Congratulations to Wizkid on the win.
