The BET Awards 2012 is over and frankly, it gets a I could care less “shrug” from me. I am the least bit impressed with the event, especially where Africans are concerned and I am not even sure I desire, any longer, to see our artists on the BET platform. This year marks the third year that African artists are nominated and ignored on the network’s global platform during the showing of the event. However, the few times I have watched the BET Awards show, I am reminded how ridiculously different it is from other awards within and outside the USA.
There is a level of class that the event consistently lacks, although certain years, like the year Mo’Nique hosted it, it was on-point. Bottom line, Africans being nominated and showing up to receive awards backstage has become anti-climatic and really . . . next!
Turning my attention to more important things, check out the documentary on Da Grin’s life by Gini.
