The 2021 BET Awards nominations have been announced with Grammy-winning Nigerian stars, Wizkid and Burna Boy making the list.

Both superstars were nominated in the best international act category.

They were nominated alongside Aya Nakamura and Youssoupha (France); Diamond Platnumz (Tanzanian); Emicida (Brazil); Headie One and the duo Yung T and Bugsey (UK).

Following last year’s groundbreaking virtual awards show, the BET Awards returns this year with a live show audience.

The event will take place at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on June 23.

The awards celebrate the brightest stars across music, television, film, sports, and philanthropy.

The International Act category has honoured African artists who have done Africa proud and become recognisable worldwide for their talent.

Among past winners were Nigeria’s 2face and D’banj in 2011, Wizkid in 2017, Ghana’s Sarkodie and Stonebwoy in 2012 and 2015 respectively and South Africa’s Black Coffee in 2016. 

Burna Boy won the award in the last two years.

Earlier in the year, Wizkid and Burna Boy won the Best Music Video and Best Global Music Album categories respectively at the 2021 Grammy Awards.

In 2020, Wizkid also won the BET HER Award for ‘Brown Skin Girl.’

American rappers Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby are leading the pack with seven nominations.

Cardi B and Drake garnered the second most nods with five nominations each.
