@Cassper Nyovest & @DistructionB Get Nominated for a BET Awards Best international Act
Its awards season again and our very own South African artist Cassper Nyovest and Destruction Boyz have been nominated for a BET Awards Best International act this coming June. This is the first time that the international category combined both UK and African artists to compete for the award. It is also the first time that the award winner will be announced on the main stage.
Cassper had the following to say : “For me this (nomination) means we are moving in the right direction. It’s not just Africa, it’s not two categories anymore, and it’s everybody. I am also familiar with everyone I am nominated with. This shows my consistency and I feel like in an industry like ours where people are around for two to three years then disappear, it means I’m moving in the right direction.”
Cassper and Distruction Boyz join Nigerian musicians Davido and Tiwa Savage as well as Congolese star Fally Ipupa to represent Africa at the BET awards.
Destruction Boyz had the below to say
“I think what we are going to try and use as a weapon, is our music. It’s fresh, it’s new and it’s edgy, so getting performances and stuff like that is going to spread the news of gqom and spread the South African vibes. So we gong there for the music and nothing else.”
