Wizkid Snubbed BET Awards Disrespectful Pre Show Ceremony. BET Wasn’t Happy About It…So He Put Them On Blast!

Since Ghanaian rapper FUSE ODG spoke out against the organizers of the BET Awards on Sunday night for their treatment of African artistes, more and more artistes are coming forward to voice their displeasure against the American TV network. Yesterday BET award nominee Yemi Alade took to Instagram to post and delete a rant against BET & now Wizkid is speaking out against them!

Wizkid who was also nominated in the Best African Act category snobbed BET by not attending the pre show. The pre show is when the winner of the Best African Act award is given his plaque backstage, followed by an “acceptance speech” to an empty audience as fellow nominees stand around the winner as they all collectively hold the plaque and smile like buffoons for the empty hall.

This pre show is what’s aired to UK & African audiences.

BET’s must have been that Wizkid who attended the main show at the Microsoft Theater skipped the pre-show. Nicely served shade from Wizzy by the way! The BET execs must have made their feelings known to the 24 year old pop star who immediately jumped on Twitter to call them out!
