After weeks of voting, the BET Awards announced its winners at a BET Experience event in Los Angeles yesterday 25th of June. Amongst the announced winners for the night are South African DJ Black Coffee who beat Yemi Alade, Wizkid, Casper Nyovest, AKA, Diamond Platnumz, MzVee, and Serge Beynaud to the Best International Act: Africa award. For the Best International Act: Viewers Choice category, Nigeria’s Falz was announced winner on the award show’s Twitter Account.
Falz battled with British grime group Section Boyz, rap collective WSTRN, South African rapper Emtee, Australian based Zimbabwean rapper TKAY and Senegalese-born French rapper MHD for the award where fans were expected to vote for the rapper with the hastag “IPickFalz”.
