The 2018 BET Awards will be held on June 24 and the nominees have been revealed.
Ghana’s Sarkodie and Stonebwoy who previously won the prestigious award as 2012 and 2015 Best International Act Africa winners respectively couldn’t get any nomination this year but United Kingdom (UK) based Ghanaian rapper Stormzy made it.
Born, Michael Ebenezer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr. better known by his stage name Stormzy, is a Ghanaian descent but an English grime and hip hop artist.
He is competing with Davido (Nigeria), Casper Nyovest (South Africa), Tiwa Savage (Nigeria), Fally Ipupa (DRC), Distruction Boyz (South Africa), Stefflon Don (UK), J Hus (UK) Niska (France), Dadju (France), Booba (France).
The 24 year-old hip hop act won Best Grime Act at the 2014 and 2015 MOBO Awards and was named as an artist to look out for in the BBC’s influential Sound of 2015 list. His most successful song to date is the BPI platinum-selling “Shut Up”, which was initially released as a freestyle on YouTube. The track was then officially released and got to number eight on the UK Singles Chart after Stormzy launched a campaign to reach Christmas number one.
His debut album, Gang Signs & Prayer, was released on 24 February 2017 and was the first grime album to reach number one on the UK Albums Chart.
Many expected Stonebwoy and Sarkodie who recently won some of the top awards at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

I nearly aborted DJ Switch when I conceived her – Mother
Mother of Ghana’s youngest DJ, DJ Switch has disclosed that she considered having an abortion while she was pregnant with her daughter.
She remorsefully said on Zylofon 102.1 FM’s Showbiz Agenda that had she known her daughter would have turned out successful, the thought will not have crossed her mind.
“I almost aborted her. I actually went ahead to purchase the drug to terminate the pregnancy but I changed my mind later on”, she said.
According to her, she realized she was with another child six months after having her first child and could not bear the stigma.
“I was the talk of town. Everybody was pointing fingers at me because I had just graduated and in less than two years, was going to be a mother of two”, she added.
However, she expressed her joy in the fact that she restrained from the act and, now her daughter is the most popular young DJ in the country.
