Nasty C is seen showing off what looks like a BET Award in a series of videos he posted yesterday. The rapper touched down in New York City on Monday.
Nasty C seems to be the man of the moment and as such, the controversy never ends and this time it’s another award scandal. The rapper showed off what seems to be a BET Award in a swanky New York City hotel. In a series of Instagram videos, the rapper is seen holding the award with his single, Juice Back playing in the background.
Last week the BET.com leaked names of several winners on their website but quickly apologized citing a technical glitch. Nasty C’s name was one of the names leaked and he was announced the winner of Best International Act: Africa, a category where he is nominated alongside Nigeria’s Tekno and Davido as well as South Africa’s AKA.
This is not the first time that the NDA hitmaker and his record label, Mabala Noise was accused of buying awards. He even responded to some of these allegations and assured us that he works hard, that’s all.
BET are sticking to their story that the results were faulty and do not reflect the final results. In a statement, they had this to say: “An unforeseen technical issue on BET.com’s BET AWARDS show page resulted in several categories revealing randomly selected nominees as winners. We apologize for the confusion to all of the artists affected and to our fans and we look forward to celebrating this year’s winners at the BET Awards LIVE from LA on June 25th in the US and airing in the UK on Tuesday, June 27th, in Africa on Tuesday, June 27th, and in France on Wednesday, June 28th.”
Amanda Black scored herself a Viewer’s Choice: Best International award nomination and the legendary Yvonne Chaka Chaka will be honoured with a BET International Global Good Star & Power award.
