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

    sarah Reply:

    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 Reply:

    @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
