2010 marked the inauguration of the BET Awards Best International Act, Africa category. It was history in the making as African acts were nominated for the awards: M.I, P-Square, Kojo Antwi among the nominees. It was also history in the making for Ladybrille, the first African owned online publication to be invited to the BET Awards to cover both the pre-awards and awards red carpet event. This year, we are happy to see BET Networks’ continued efforts to recognize African acts. Among the nominees for this year’s awards show is TuFace, D’Banj and Fally Ipupa. The nominees have since arrived in Los Angeles for the show tonight and are busy enjoying their closeups. Check out a few images from the event courtesy the reputable Cecil Hammond.
