BET Awards: Kwesi Arthur gets nomination in Viewers’ Choice category

Ghanaian rap artiste, Kwesi Arthur has earned a nomination in this year’s Black Entertainment Television Awards.

The ‘Grind Day’ rapper has been nominated for the Viewers’ Choice: Best New International Act category.

He has been nominated in the same category with Southern African artiste Sjava and Nigerian singer Niniola.

Not long ago the award scheme released nominations for the major categories and no Ghanaian act was nominated in the international act category.

This stoked arguments on what may have gone wrong with the nominations or the performance of the Ghanaian acts in the year under review.

Kwesi Arthur who won the Hip-Pop song of the Year at the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards has won the hearts of most music lovers with songs like ‘Grind Day,’ ‘Ade Akye’ and ‘Anthem.’

The BET Awards were established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network to celebrate African Americans and other American minorities in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment over the past year.

The awards are presented annually, and are broadcast live on BET. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by artistes, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a televised ceremony.

The BET Awards will air live on BET on June 24 from Los Angeles. It will be hosted by Jamie Foxx.
