No Ghanaian artiste earned a nomination at the 2021 Black Entertainment Television Awards (BET).
It was expected that the level of engagement by the likes of Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, and Shatta Wale during the year would secure them a nomination.
WizKid and Burna Boy were nominated in the Best International Act category. Diamond Platnumz of Tanzania is also a contender for the award.
The BET Awards honours individuals who have excelled during the year under review in the areas of music, acting, sports, and other entertainment fields.
This year's event will be held on Sunday, June 27, 2021, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles in the United States of America.
Sarkodie and Stonebwoy won Best International Act, Africa in 2012 and 2015 respectively. The former was also nominated for the same award in 2014 and 2015 but lost out to other contenders.
In other news, On-air personality, Amanda Jissih, has finally opened up about her failed relationship with Ghanaian singer, Prince Bright. The beautiful presenter has accused Prince Bright of lying about his marriage to her while they were dating.
In what has been a retaliation over the words of Prince Bright, whom she claims has been spreading lies about their relationship, she maintained that he even broke up with her for no apparent reason to indicate that he was just toying with her.
Prince Bright of Buk Bak Fame, in an interview with Delay, had claimed that he and Amanda Jissih were not in any serious relationship.
According to him, the “relationship” ended because he was no longer interested as he is the type that doesn’t waste time on lost causes.
“If you once loved someone and you are no longer interested in a relationship with them. You are not supposed to go back and tell them to their face that you are not interested,” he noted.
