Tuesday night saw the announcement of the nominations for the 2018 Black Entertainment (BET) Awards and one category that’s currently of much interest to Ghanaians is the Best International Act Category.
Because in the past years,some Ghanaian acts likes D-Black,Mzvee,Sarkodie and Stonebwoy have all earned nominations in this category, so this year,Ghanaians as usual had keen interest as to which of their top guns like Stonebwoy,Sarkodie,Shatta wale,Patapaa among others who did great exploits in 2017 would made into this year’s Awards scheme..
But this year’s category which seemed to have merged with Best International act UK saw Ghana missing out drastically.The new category ‘Best International Act’ has Booba (France), Cassper Nyovest (SA), Dadju (France), Davido (Nigeria), Distruction Boyz (SA) and Fally Ipupa (Dr. Congo) as nominees..
With this turn of event,looks like some music enthusiasts and industry people aren’t too shocked about the news with the view that,it is a true reflection of the shape of our music or entertainment industry during the year under review.With other sharing the opposite view.

Others are J Hus (UK), Niska (France), Tiwa Savage (Nigeria), Stefflon Don (UK) and UK grime act Stormzy (UK).
Migos, SZA, Bruno Mars, Drake, Beyonce, JAY-Z, Cardi B and Chris Brown have all been nominated in various categories.
