The question I am asking my self this morning is, Are Ghanaian musicians not working Hard enough?. The nominees list for the 2018 BET awards has been announced and looking through the Best international act category, no Ghanaian made it to the list.
The United Kingdom dominated the list with Stefflon Don, Stormzy and J HUs grabbing nomiations. The only Ghanaian who made it to the list is 24-year-old rapper, Stormzy, a Ghanaian UK-based musician.
This year BET added the UK to the Best International Category making it very competitive.
Although Ghana lost out this time around, we can boast of the likes of Sarkodie, Stonebwoy,R2bees, MzVee, D-Black, and others who made us proud at the annual award ceremony.
BET Award 2018 Best International Act nominees:
1. Booba (France)
2. Cassper Nyovest (SA)
3. Dadju (France)
4. Davido (Nigeria)
5. Distruction Boyz (SA)
6. Fally Ipupa (Dr. Congo)
7. J Hus (UK)
8. Niska (France)
9. Tiwa Savage (Nigeria)
10. Stefflon Don (UK)
11. Stormzy (UK)
Sarkodie and Stonebwoy are the only Ghanaian artiste to pick up the awards at the 2012 and 2015 editions respectively. However, MzVee made history in 2016 as the first female Ghanaian musician to be nominated for the awards established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network but could not bring the glory home.
