Wizkid Wins Best International Act, Africa at 2017 BET Awards But Missing In Action

Nigerian Afrobeats musician Wizkid has won the Best International Act category at the 2017 BET Awards, www.nydjlive.com can exclusively report but …

Yes, the One Dance hit maker beat competition from Ghanaian dancehall giant Stonebwoy, fellow label artist Mr. Eazi, Davido, AKA, Nasty C, Teckno and Babes Wudumo.

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 www.nydjlive.com is 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.

Check out a couple of his tweets after Ghana’s Hub For Pop Culture & Urban News – www.nydjlive.com broke the news of his win.

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
