In the swanky northern suburbs of Johannesburg, we were in attendance as it was announced that Cassper Nyovest and Distruction Boys have been nominated for the Best International Act category at the 2018 BET Awards.
It was announced yesterday that the Best International Africa category will now be part of the Best International Act, together with the rest of the world. These categories will now be merged into one big category and will be part of the main award show. In the past, the African category was not part of the main show but that has changed and the artists will get a part of the full experience.
Cassper has been nominated a total of three times for the BET. However, this is the first nomination for Distruction Boys, off of their debut album. The significance of this category is that our local acts are now recognised as International Acts. They will be going up against giants such as Davido, Skepta and Tiwa Savage to name a few. We are quite excited to see the boys on the stage and we certainly hope that they bring it home!
