Wizkid Blasts BET Awards Alongside Fuse, Yemi Alade,
Wizkid has eventually blasted the BET Awards.
The Nigerian singer was nominated for the Best International Act – Africa at the 2015 BET awards. Wizkid happened to have been in Los Angeles, where the awards held, and he decided to show up for the show.
The music star failed to attend the pre-shows and nominees party, or carry out any responsibility that comes with his nomination.
Wizkid who had previously won the award jointly with Sarkodie in 2012, has taken to social media to also complain about the treatment dashed out to non-US stars.
Wizkid also stated that he declined to receive his BET awards backstage. Wizkid and Sarkodie were both seen in 2012 at the pre-event shows, but they happen not have been photographed receiving the plaques. Wizkid reason is still still the same, as it was in 2012.
Wizkid gave his opinion about the choice of Stonebwoy as a winner. He congratulated the dancehall artiste, and expressed love for him.
Wizkid was not alone in his criticism of the shady operations of BET. Yemi Alade had earlier complained about the awards, and also insinuated that Stonebwoy was an undeserving choice of winner.
UK afrobeats star, Fuse ODG also threw in his opinion, attributing his absence at the awards to ill-treatment.
