BET Awards Snubs Africa Again posted on Monday, 20th May 2013 - [ 559 views ]
The BET Awards again snubbed the Best International Acts category by presenting the awards to winners offstage.
It still remains a mystery to most African music enthusiasts why BET refuses to acknowledge the international acts on stage, with many sharing their disgust on social networks.
Certainly, if these artists travel miles across the globe to attend the event, BET could at least give them 30 seconds to receive their spotlight.
For a network meant for Black Entertainment, it makes no sense for artists like Justin Beiber to shine at BET Awards while original African acts get quarantined as if they were some disease.
Yes we saw the international acts (Africa and UK) on the red carpet, media center etc and that is some exposure in the US for them. But BET should seriously consider fully recognizing these artists at the awards.
