And the nominees for the 2017 BET Awards are:

Best International Act: Africa

Aka (South Africa)
Babes Wodumo (South Africa)
Davido (Nigeria)
Nasty C (South Africa)
Stonebwoy (Ghana)
Tekno (Nigeria)
Wizkid (Nigeria)
Mr Eazi (Nigeria)

The ceremony will be held on Sunday, 25 June at the Microsoft Theatre in LA and will be delayed by days on BET in Africa yet again.

It's the same, dated story every year ... come on BET, get it together! They're called the "BET Awards" so it's hardly like it's a problem getting the rights to air them.

It strongly suggests the channel feels there isn't enough interest in them in Africa for it to be worth their while to push for them on time.

The ceremony will only air here on Tuesday, 27 June at 20h00.
