Nigeria’s Wizkid has waged war against BET Awards shortly after the award ceremony that took place yesterday.
The Show You Ma Money singer took to his Twitter account to wage a war against Black Entertainment, the organisers of the prestigious award.He accused BET for side-lining, segregating and under-looking African acts and awarding them way before the main show starts.
“I love u all for what u do for black entertainment worldwide.I respect the fact u guys do this every year.i know it’s not easy.I understand,” he tweeted. “But I won’t be attending ur preshows and nominee parties if I’m getting the award at 10am before the main show.”
This is what happened to Uganda’s award recipient Eddy Kenzo when he bagged the award.It is believed that he was handed his plaque on the red carpet way before the main event started and his part wasn’t shown on TV.
Purists sight television benefits, but blacks segregating fellow blacks is plainly hogwash. Over the years, African nominees haven’t been shown on TV like fellow contemporaries like Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj et al.
This shameful segregation has always been a point of debate. It, thus, rendered Wizkid to mouth his disappointment and explained why he snubbed the award the first time he won it.
Eddy Kenzo festival beginning of new trend for big artistes?
Big Talent boss Eddy Kenzo recently called for a press briefing and surprised the media that expected he was announcing his usual annual concert but instead announced he would be holding a festival. It is the first of it’s kind from a Ugandan artiste.
A festival is an all day event that cuts across various activities from kid’s park, different stages and caters for all age groups.
Eddy Kenzo will hold his festival on the 28th of March at Kololo airstrip and he will use the same day to give back to his fans. While he will as expected perform, he will also have goodies to give to the fans like motocycles, helicopter rides among other offers.
Eddy Kenzo being the most travelled artiste in Uganda could have imported an idea that will so much be the new trend for big artistes in the country. For the past 20 years, artistes have been holding night concerts and obviously that leaves out a certain section of their fans, the festival is a much better option for fans to celebrate their stars.
Eddy Kenzo has invited all fellow artistes to grace the event.
