Every year, BET hosts an award show which gives accolades to the anchors of black entertainment all over the world.
The nominations for next month's ceremony were announced last night, and among the list of nominees such as SZA, Beyoncé and DJ Khaled are our very own Nigerian superstars, Davido and Tiwa Savage, both competing in the 'Best International Act' category.
Nominated in the same category are some of our UK faves as well — Stormzy, Stefflon Don and J Hus. Following the release of her stellar Sugarcane EP, it's not hard to see why Tiwa Savage is on the list. Davido has also proved worthy, with the back-to-back monster hits he dropped last year.
Other African acts, Fally Ipupa and Cassper Nyovest, are also nominated, showing that there are really eyes looking in, as Cassper is arguably the best rapper in Africa. We couldn't help but notice Wizkid's absence on the list, however, which is a little shocking, especially since he won the award last year.
Anyway, we wish all the artists good luck, and are looking forward to seeing the results!
