BET Awards, Davido Tiwa Savage

Davido and Tiwa Savage are nominated for BET awards

Davido and Tiwa Savage have been announced as nominations for the “Best International Act, Music” category at the BET music awards. This is not the first time either one would be nominated though. In 2014 Davido won a BET international award which Tiwa Savage was also enlisted for. He was also nominated in the same category in 2016, along with Tekno and Mr Eazi, and Wizkid, who won the award.

But this year is a little different. In the past, the International award category was split into UK and Africa. The has been changed to accommodate acts from everywhere outside the United States. While this integration gives room for universality, it means the artists are paired from all regions in the world, except America.

Davido and Tiwa Savage are nominated in the category along with equally notable acts such as Cassper Nyovest from South Africa, Booba from France, Stormzy and J Hus from UK.

The 2018 BET Awards is scheduled to take place on Sunday, June 25, 2018 at the Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles, California, United States. See the full list of nominees below.
