The BET Awards was established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television Network to celebrate African Americans and other minorities in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment over the past years.
The awards are presented annually, and are broadcasted live on BET.
Since the Black Television Entertainment started recognising Africans from the year 2010 till date, no South Africa musician has been able to bring the enviable accolade home after getting nominated consistently throughout the entire six years journey.
HHP was the first South African Musician to be nominated.
This year’s award is slated to take place at the Microsoft Theatre in LA on 26th June. Though the nominations list for this year’s awards are out, we at afromirror.com brings to you all nominated South African musicians at the BET Awards for the ”Best International Act: Africa” category since its maiden edition to date.
We pray for the first time the accolade hits South Africa since we have three acts representing in this year’s nomination.
