Proud Winner: Stonebwoy Accepting His BET Award

Ghana’s superstar Reggae-Dancehall artist, Stonebwoy has won the award for Best International Act: Africa at the 2015 BET Awards. Stonebwoy was nominated in a category which included fellow countryman and rapper, Sarkodie, South Africans – rapper, A.K.A. and sining group, The Soil, DRC singing sensation Fally Ipupa, Kenyan star group Sauti Sol (Kenya), Nigerians – singer, Wizkid and songstress, Yemi Alade. We can only say well done to Stonebwoy for taking home such a prestigious award.

Meanwhile, another one of Stonebwoy’s fellow countrymen, Fuse ODG, who is also British, came out fuming at the organisers of the Awards Ceremony, BET (TV Network) for what he dubbed ‘lack of respect’. He tweeted the below tweet;

Indeed African and other international artists have been sidelined at several internationally recognised award ceremonies, in particular American ones, even though they form a huge proportion of the music industry and contribute via several other ways, such a writing and producing.

Fuse had been nominated in the Best International Act: UK alongside FKA Twigs, Lethal Bizzle, Little Simz, and Stormzy. Stormzy however, emerged the winner.
