Popular reggea and ragga artist Bebe Cool born Moses Ssali had earlier this week hired a big muscled man to always keep his wife Zuena safe in anticipation for a trip to the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles for the 2016 BET Awards.
It’s a huge disappointment Bebe Cool miscalculated and will wait much much long to get a sniff at East African’s only BET winner Eddy Kenzo’s experience even after opportunistically releasing so many songs in the last few days.
‘Gagamel’ reps haven’t gotten back to us yet about whether the Tubonga Nawe singer is very upset that he can’t show Kenzo he no mediocre.
Not to say the “upcoming musicians” like Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania) are continuing to shine globally as Bebe Cool’s ‘Go Mama’ album struggles to get the attention the awards organisers. The Americans snubbed him again in the Best International Act (Africa) category for Diamond, Wizkid (Nigeria), Yemi Alade (Nigeria), MzVee (Ghana), Serge Beynaud (Côte d’Ivoire), AKA (South Africa), Black Coffee (South Africa) and Cassper Nyovest (South Africa).
In the bigger categories, Drake handily leads the list of nominees with nine nods. Tying for second place are Beyonce, last year’s big winner, and Rihanna with five nominations each. Bryson Tiller, Chris Brown and Future are each up for a quartet of awards.
The 4-day 2-16 BET Experience will kick off on June 23 and will climax with the awards night on June 26.
