Ghanian dance hall star, Stonebwoy took home the 2015 bet award for best international act, beating Nigerian nominees Yemi Alade and Wizkid to the prize.
Meanwhile, African acts Dencia (who attended the event) and Fuse ODG (who didn’t) have criticised organisers of the bet awards for treating African nominees below expectation.
Following the award ceremony over the weekend, the two disgruntled acts called out the award organisers for presenting awards to African acts either backstage or hours before the ceremony begins.
Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade also posted her discontent on instagram, saying:
Cameroonian-Nigerian singer, Dencia has released the visual interpretation of her latest single – African Energy.
In the video, Dencia sizzles in several eclectic costumes as she performs the song in honour of the African spirit.
She also celebrates global icons and successful Africans including Didier Drogba, Lupita Nyong’o, late Afrobeats legend, Fela Anikulapokuti and Nelson Mandela.
