BET Must Stop Hiding Best African Act Award Winners Backstage #BETStopTheDisparitygiveBestAfricanActAwardOnStage

Has any other person noticed the hurtful, bias and disrespectful act been perpetuated by BET? Each year they nominate and invite African Acts to the award ceremony, but instead of honoring them on stage just like there African-American counterparts, they hide them behind the backstage! The African award winners are just as important as any other BET award winners and should be given the same opportunity to appear on stage to receive their awards and not be relegated to receive their awards at the back of the stage. 

They deserve the same respect given to African American artistes and should be given their moment of honour on the stage. 

Davido won 2014 and the award was given backstage, Ice Prince won it in 2013 and the award was also given backstage, Wizkid and Sarkodie were also honoured backstage in 2012, 2face and Dbanj were also hidden backstage the list is endless.

I am imploring all African nominees to the BET 2015 to  reject the award if they must be honoured backstage. 

#BETStopTheDisparitygiveBestAfricanActAwardOnStage, Africa let us let the world hear about this.
