No Ghanaian was nominated for the BET Awards 2018. El gringo and Sergeant Lee did not receive any nominations.
The nomination list for the BET Awards 2018 has been released and most Ghanaians and Africans in general were in high anticipation of knowing the names of the artists nominated for the Best International Act Category.
It was quite surprising to see that no Ghanaian Artist was nominated in that Category. Ghanaian Afro pop Reggae and Dancehall artist Stonebwoy was expected to be nominated from Ghana looking at the works he put out there during the year under review. The 2015 BET Award winner for the Best International Act released his third studio album under his current label Zylofon music entitled Epistles of Mama.
The Epistles of Mama Album featured a host of international musicians including Sean Paul, Morgan heritage and so on. Stonebwoy’s album topped several charts globally and he nearly won a Grammy Award for being featured in an album created by Jamaican Reggae icons Morgan heritage.
Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie and Self acclaimed Dancehall king Shatta wale also did their best but couldn’t make the cut for the Best international Act category. Another very shocking exemption was Nigerian superstar Wizkid whom most people think deserves a spot on that list.
Wizkid is slated to perform at this year’s Ghana meets naija concert at the international conference in Ghana.
The nominations for next month’s ceremony were announced Tuesday night (May 15).
The BET Awards will air live on BET on June 24 from Los Angeles.
