A Ghanaian awards CEO, Sadiq Abdulai Abu took a swipe at BET organizers over the nomination of Nigerian rapper, Falz in same category with legendary Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie.
Sadiq was speaking to Hitz FM, a radio station based in Accra, Ghana.
Recall that Falz was on Thursday September 12, unveiled alongside other international artistes as nominees for the 2019 BET Hip-Hop Awards.
Falz was nominated in BET’s new Best International Flow category alongside Nasty C (South Africa), Sarkodie (Ghana), Tory Lanez (Canada), OG Ghetts (UK) and Little Simz (UK).
According to Sadiq, Falz is not good enough to be in the list and that is a big disrespect to the Ghanaian rapper who has “been there and done that”.
”What’s Falz doing in the BET’s Best International Flow Category? I think it is disrespectful to Sarkodie for Falz to be in the same category as him, looking at the standard Sarkodie has set.
“Sarkodie is been there, and done that. There is no slowing down. I hope he wins” he said.
The BET “Hip Hop Awards” will return to Atlanta, USA, where the winner will be announced during the global broadcast on Saturday, October 5, 2019.
