Though Ghana’s FUSE ODG lost to Stormzy , Sunday, June 28 night’s BET Awards proved memorable for so many reasons.
From Stonebwoy‘s massive win to Rihanna duct taping Floyd Mayweather’s mouth shut and show-stopping performances from Big Sean, The Weeknd and Alicia Keys, the Hip-hop industry didn’t fail to turn up from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Famous presenters Laverne Cox, Zendaya, Michael B. Jordan, Kelly Rowland and more were also on-hand to honour some of the biggest names in music.
