The 21st BET Awards 2021 nominees list has been unveiled. Cameroonian Artists Miss Out Of BET Award 2021 Nominations Yet Again.
“We are back and excited to bring culture’s biggest night, the 2021 ‘BET Awards,’ safely back to Los Angeles to celebrate this year’s incredible roster of nominees. We broke ground as one of the first official awards shows to move forward during the global pandemic and we are ready to take our pioneer status to the next level with the return of an audience to celebrate the best and brightest creative minds in the entertainment industry,” said Connie Orlando, EVP Specials, Music Programming & Music Strategy.
One of the categories, Best International Act, caught the interest of Cameroonians and Africans in general as the category honors some African artists who have been thriving in the music scene over the past year.
However, no Cameroonian got nominated in this category, not even the most prolific of them all. The nominees for the Best International Act are:
Aya Nakamuraa (France)
Burna Boy (Nigeria) – Nominated for the third time in a row.
Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania)
Young T and Bugsey (UK)
This has got Cameroonians wondering if the likes of Stanley Enow, Salatiel, Charlotte Dipanda, Blanche Bailly, Rinyu, Ko-C, Tzy Panchak, etc, are not deserving of the award. It should be noted that this is the umpteenth time artists from Cameroon are missing out on the BET nomination list.
Ghana, South Africa, Kenya and DR Congo also missed out of the nominations even with the likes of Sarkodie, Nasty C, Sauti Sol and Fally Ipupa from the respective countries.
The BET Awards is an American award show that was created in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network to celebrate African Americans in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment over the past year. The 2021 edition of the awards will air live on Sunday, June 27 on BET at 8 PM ET/ PT.
