Ghana will not be represented at the BET Awards in 2021: Here is the complete list of nominees.

The list of nominees for the 2021 edition of the Black Entertainment Television [BET] Awards did not include any Ghanaian artists.

With prior winners such as Sarkodie and Stonebwoy winning the prize and Kwesi Arthur receiving several nominations year after year, the fact that no Ghanaian made the list of candidates is a major disappointment.

Does this imply that Ghanaian musicians aren’t producing enough or that it’s an issue of quality?

Let’s take a look at the BET Nominations for 2021:

Hopefully, our artists will be chosen again next year.
