Globally recognized Nigerian singer, Wizkid made history at the 2022 BET Awards alongside his female colleague, Tems.
The Awards, which was held on Sunday 26th July 2022 at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles saw the superstars win the best collaboration category for their song ‘Essence’..
With the win, ‘Essence’ becomes the first African song to win a BET Award, and Wizkid becomes the first Nigerian and African to win an award outside the Best International Acts category.
On the other hand, Tems won her first international award in 2 categories – “Best International Act” & “Best Collaboration” – Essence (Wizkid & Justin Bieber).
Over the last decade, Wizkid has been one of the major acts leading Afrobeats international push and it’s only befitting for him to be the artist to break the BET category limitation for Nigerian and African artists.
