In Ghana, the category in the BET Awards that courts several reviews and is spoken about is the Best International Act: Africa category.


Prior to the nominations, Dancehall act Stonebwoy was seen openly lobbying to be nominated by the awards scheme and that seemed to have worked for him as he is the only Ghanaian act to be nominated for the category.

However, pundits have said that the nomination is woefully inadequate considering the fact that the country has a host of exports the country has and the number of hit songs produced in the year under review.

People on social media have also added their voice to the number of slots the country was given.
