BET Awards: AKA Up Against Cassper

22 May 2016
Local artists Cassper Nyovest, AKA and Black Coffee have all been nominated for an American BET award. The awards take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles next month. The lads have been nominated in the Best International Act: African category.

They will compete against the likes of Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania), Yemi Alade (Nigeria), Mzvee (Ghana), Serge Beynaud (Cote d’lvoire) and Nigerian superstar Wizkid.


The rappers took to their social media accounts following the announcement. Cassper said that he was honoured by the nomination. While AKA kept it short and simple in his post on Twitter.

AKA and Cassper were nominated for a BET Award last year, AKA in the Best International Act category and Cassper in the Viewers' Choice Best International Act. Neither of the rappers won their respective categories.
