rsz_1yemialadepose_that1960chickcom

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?

Fuse ODG Calls Out BET Over Their Disrespectful Treatment Of African Artists! Do You Agree With Him?

Fuse+ODG+18th+Annual+MOBO+Awards+Press+Room+qTe1Sz0hLzAl

UK based Ghanaian rapper Fuse ODG was one of the African artistes invited to attend the BET Awards which took place yesterday night (June 28) but he chose not to go because of the organisation’s blatant disregard of African acts, he opted instead to perform at Glastonbury Music Festival, the biggest music festival in the UK.

It’s a known fact that the winners of the Best International Act (Africa) receive their awards backstage, this is then followed by an “acceptance speech” given in front of an empty audience, hours before the live event is aired. To add to this, the pre-recorded acceptance speech is only aired in Europe and Africa, never in the United States, because let’s be real – mainstream America doesn’t give two F’s about African music.

Black people’s annual night to celebrate music went down last night and as one of the biggest nights of the year, the BET Awards bring out an interesting mix of actors, rappers, singers, sports stars and reality stars. And with that comes a very interesting mix of fashion.

The BET Awards went down last night [June 28] at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and a few things went down.

  • Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill made their red carpet debut as a couple. Her ex Safaree Samuels was nowhere to be seen, according to reports Minaj had him banned from the red carpet.
  • Ciara & Russell Wilson also made their red carpet debut as a couple
  • So did Amber Rose & Blac Chyna who rocked identical white pant suits. They kissed for the cameras just before Amber made it known that they attended the glam ceremony together as each others dates to celebrate the legalisation of gay marriage in America.

Buhari Wants To Build A Helipad In His Hometown & Naija Twitter Is Not Happy About It. Should This Be The Presidency’s Priority Right Now?

NewBuhari_Portrait_that1960chick.com

Reports emerged this morning that the Federal Government is building a helipad in President Buhari’s hometown of Daura, Katsina State.

The purpose of the helipad according to THISDAY is to ensure a direct flight for President Muhammadu Buhari whenever he visits his country home. It will save the President the hassle of embarking on a road journey from Katsina Airport to Daura.

To be honest it doesn’t cost much to build a helipad. A few bags of cement and one can of black and white paint each and you have a helipad! But for some reason many in the opposition did not take kindly to the news and bit at PMB, especially as the news of the Daura helipad comes in the wake of news that former President Goodluck Jonathan left an empty treasury & Buhari has still not named his cabinet.

See the tweets after the jump & tell us if you are for or against the President’s helipad
