Award winning UK based Ghanaian musician Fuse ODG has directed a missile at organizers of the BET Awards, BET and explained why he boycotted the awards despite being nominated for the Best International Act, UK.
Minutes after the winner for the Best International Act, UK category was announced, Fuse ODG who had had a great time performing at the Glastonbury Festival in London took to Twitter to address a concern many other Africans have expressed over the years.
In the post, Fuse ODG said;
“the reason why I didn’t come is because you give our awards backstage! You have no respect for our hard work and achievements.”
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
