Support Naija! Vote Tuface & D’Banj for BET Awards 2011

by Taiwo Damilola

It’s the time of the year again when nominations roll out for the BET awards – the time for those nominated to gloat and those not nominated to fume. So far, Keyshia Cole and Trina are the only ones who’ve come out to show their displeasure with the nominations. Nigeria’s 2face Idibia and D’Banj have also been nominated in the ‘Best International Act: Africa’ category, alongside Congolese singer Fally Ipupa, South African rap duo Teargas, D-Black from Ghana and the legendary singer Angelique Kidjo. Last year, M.I and P Square were the first Nigerian acts to be included in the nominations list.
