Nigerian super star boy wizkid has won the award for best international African act at the 2017 BET.
He won this award over our very own StoneBwoy. The Ghanaian Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy failed to achieve his dream of winning a second Black Entertainment Television (BET) Award.
Mr. Eazi, Davido, AKA, Nasty C, Babes Wodumo and Tekno were the other nominees in the Africa category. The winner was announced during the BET Awards International ceremony, an event held to announce winners in the Best International Act: Africa and Europe categories.
The awards scheme celebrates the accomplishments of African-Americans and other minorities in music, acting, sports and other fields of entertainment over the past year. It was established in 2001.
The main event will be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, United States of America, and will be hosted by comedian Leslie Jones. Bruno Mars, Mary J. Blige, Gucci Mane, Chris Brown, Big Sean, Trey Songz, DJ Khaled, Future and Maxwell are some of the performers.
