No nomination for Ghana at 2018 BET Awards

The list of nominees for the 2018  Black Entertainment Television Awards (BET) has been released.
However, front-runners in the Ghanaian music industry like Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, Sarkodie and others lost out on the Best International Act category.

This year sees the merger of Best International Act: Africa & UK, and that crown is contested by Davido, Tiwa Savage, Booba, Dadju, Distruction Boys, Fally Ipupa, J Hus, Steflon Don, and Niska. Indeed, Ghana’s only real association with the category would be the nomination of Gryme act, Stormzy, who, though is a UK artist, bears Ghanaian ancestry.

In the past years, Ghana has been represented by musicians like Kojo Antwi, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, MzVee, D Black and R2Bees.

The BET Awards were established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network to celebrate African Americans and other American minorities in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment over the past year. The awards are presented annually, and are broadcast live on BET. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by artists, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a televised ceremony.

The BET Awards will air live on BET on June 24 from Los Angeles.
