hey says:

BET is a big ass joke. they fly our musicians all the way from Africa and then they give them an award backstage like WTF?

sarah says:

People are making a big deal that they won. they presented the awards to sakordie and wizkid backstage

Sarkodie really deserves this award He is simply a hero and I salute him for his achievements allot of thought he couldnt bring home the award and God being so good has once again showers his blessings on you Sarkodie. Keep shining Congratulations big man 

SAKINA says:

@Miyagi, i hoped it was not yesterdays .B,E,T award,cause i watched the show live on t.v and i did not see sarkodia win any award,well am happy for him though.

Miyagi says:

@SAKINA,Sweety I’m affraid  it was  and reason why you couldn’t have seen a thing is because 
It happens backstage

sarah says:

@Miyagi, what a disgrace backstage. if BET knew this then they could as well not make that catogery. they just treated them like non muthaf*ckin factors

sarah says:

because they feel that africans are to low to receive theire awards on stage, plus they had 2 winners for best african act like really do we hear that beyonce and nicki minaj both won best female of the year? get it they dont care and we always worship international stars paying them over 1 million just to perfom in our country but they dont regard us as important people

Miyagi says:

@sarah,To me this is bad and i totally agree with you its a big disgrace it shows that we haven’t arrived yet and you know what baffles me how is it cool for two different artist from two different countries both representing Africa to win one award it’s very disappointing there can’t be two winners at BET they should stop acting like clowns we are not backwards and un-civilised in Africa they way they gave them the awards backstage and not on stage does tells me that America does not recognise it this has happens for the third time already how long will that continue they like to air the videos on their network but look at the way they treating them this is humiliation to Africa 

Wizkid I no u can it… Naija & ghana we d best…Wizkid & sarkodie are taken african music to the next level…..

jasef says:
