Just a few hours after Ghanaian hip hop artiste Fuse ODG blasted BET (Black Entertainment Television) over the perceived mistreatment of African music acts at the just concluded BET Awards 2015 in Los Angeles, Yemi Alade who was nominated in the Best International Act (Africa) category has also come for the foremost TV network which seeks to celebrate black culture.

Yemi Alade’s grouse?

The same one we all have – For years why have winners of the Best African award been relegated to receiving their awards backstage before recording an acceptance speech in front of an empty audience HOURS before the main event?

See her post below: –



She deleted the Instagram post shortly after…hmmm I could be wrong but some industry heavyweights probably asked her to take it down so she doesn’t burn bridges…Just my opinion sha.

to be fair, in any huge show of this nature, Oscars, Grammys or BET,... some categories of awards are giving in pre-shows to save time.
whether BET's African award deserves main show or pre show, i don't know....but remember, the audience is mainly Americans.
