The nominations are in for the 2012 BET Awards and Naija’s Wizkid & Iceprince both bag a nomination each in the BEST INTERNATIONAL ACT (AFRICA) category. Other nominated acts in this category are Sarkodie (Ghana), Lira (South Africa), Camp Mulla (Kenya) and Mokobe (Mali). Tuface & D’Banj took home the award last year.
Kanye West leads the pack with seven nominations, Beyoncé follows with six and Jay-Z with five.
Congrats to our boys Wizzy & Ice…here’s hoping that (a) an African act performs at this year’s event and (b) BET airs the winner of the BEST INTERNATIONAL ACT (AFRICA)’s award speech (they haven’t in the past) and that is just crap! Why give an award if you aren’t going to air it?!?
The ceremony will be going down on July 1st 2012 in Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium on July 1st 2012, and will be hosted by Samuel L Jackson.
