The Nigerian pop star was nominated for the Best International Act – Africa at the 2015 BET awards. But she opted not to travel, instead remaining in Nigeria.
She has spoken out on social media against the organization of the awards.Yemi Aladeis of the opinion that it is wrong for the African stars to receive their awards before the show.
“By the way…@bet_intl AFRICA IS NOT A COUNTRY.!!! ..IT IS WRONG TO NOMINATE HUGE AFRICAN STARS AND PUBLICLY TRY TO HUMILIATE AFRICA.WHY ON EARTH IS THE AFRICAN CATEGORY OF THE AWARDS HELD HOURS BEFORE THE “MAIN EVENT? IF AFRICAN ARTISTS ARE NOT WORTHY IN YOUR SIGHT.”
Yemi Alade went further calling for the cancellation, deletion and omission of the category, if the winners will not get a chance to receive their honors at the main event.
“PLS BY ALL MEANS CANCEL,DELETE,OMMIT THE “BEST INTERNATIONAL ACT (AFRICA) CATEGORY OUT OF THIS GLORIFIED AWARD. THIS IS WRONG! !! WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG.”
Finally she threw in a shot at this year’s choice of winners for the category. The award was won by Ghanaian singer,Stonebwoy.who beat both Star Boy Wizkid and Yemi Alade,But then the public outcry against the choice of the winner was huge.
“Mainwhile… PLS NEXT TIME,CREDIBILITY OVER PADDYPADDY!! CREDIBILITY !!” Yemi Alade said.
Yemi Alade has shot into the centre of African entertainment, with her hit single‘Johnny’which was housed on her ‘King of Queens’album. She is not the first star to attack the show.
UK afrobeats star,Fuse ODG also boycotted the ceremony, stating similar reasons for his absence. The issue of issuing out certain awards backstage has made him take a stand.
Do you guys think Yemi Alade is right by saying StoneBwoy didn’t deserve the Awards?
