The 2019 BET Awards nominations have been announced and three Nigerian music stars made the list.
The Killin Dem crooner, Burna Boy, and Mr Eazi were nominated in the international act category.
They were nominated alongside AKA (South Africa); Aya Nakamura (France); Dave (U.K.); Dosseh (France) and Giggs (U.K).
In the Best New International Act category is Nigeria’s fast-rising star, Teniola Apata popularly known as Teni Makanaki.
Nominated in the same category with Teni is Sho Madjodzi from South Africa, Headie One and Octavian from the UK and France’s Jokair and Nesly.
The 2019 BET awards will take place at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on June 23.
The awards celebrate the brightest stars across music, television, film, sports, and philanthropy.
The International Act category has honoured previous African winners who have done Africa proud and become recognisable worldwide for their talent from Nigeria’s 2face and D’banj in 2011 and Wizkid in 2017, Ghana’s Sarkodie and Stonebwoy in 2012 and 2015 respectively and South Africa’s Black Coffee in 2016.
