The BET Director, Lilian N. Blankson, cleared the air on some of the issues raised, accusing African artistes for not doing enough to sell their brands to the global world.
According to her:
“First of all, tell the truth and stop tweeting lies and mis-truths. There has never been a backstage presentation of any award. Pre recorded. We need to work hard and get our music on the radio here in the US. How do people respect your brand when you are not on the radio?”
“Make your music more internationally appealing. Think of ways to get all audiences invested. Oliver Twist is a great example. Universal story,” she added.
Waoh!!! That’s all we can say…
