BET's Best International Act - Africa Nominees + Videos
The 2012 BET Awards recently announced their nominees. One of the categories, "Best International Act - Africa" had us intrigued (clearly) so we checked it out. Like most award shows, often times the nominees for the various categories are off-point. We can think of a few African artist from the last year who should probably be on this list but for whatever reason, they didn't make the cut. On the other hand, it's pretty cool that these African artists are at least getting some recognition. Below is a list of the nominees and a sample of their music. What do you think? Anyone missing? Who do you think will win? Camp Mulla - Kenya
Ice Prince - Nigeria
Lira - South Africa
Mokobe - Mali
Sarkodie - Ghana
