Davido Accepting AwardBET awards aired on June 29, 2014 in Los Angeles, saw the acknowledgement of one of Nigeria’s very own musicians: Davido. The artiste won the award for Best International Act Africa, beating Mafikizolo from South Africa, Sarkodie from Ghana, and Tiwa Savage from Nigeria, amongst other stars.Despite Davido’s success and the successful performances of artistes Tiwa Savage and Mafikizolo, social media users, specifically Afro Pop artiste Imelda J, called out BET, revealing that viewers were unaware of the subpar treatment of the African guests. In her tweets below, she claimed that top-ranking artistes like Tiwa Savage and Mafikizolo were performing in front technicians and crew, and not a crowd of guests.
