THE BET AWARDS 2018

 

 

It was a night of fun, emotions and entertainment at the BET Awards night, the ceremony took place yesterday night, June 24th at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, this year was the 18th edition. The ceremony celebrated achievements in entertainment and honors music, sports, television, and movies released between April 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018.

Jamie Fox was the host of the night and he sure took the event to the next level. He kicked off the ceremony by telling viewers he was there to celebrate.

Foxx brought “Black Panther” star Michael B. Jordan to the stage and asked him to recite the powerful line from the film, “Bury me in the ocean with my ancestors who jumped from ships, cause they knew death was better than bondage.”

Later, Foxx invited Childish Gambino to join him on stage to thank him for his socially conscious song, “This Is America.”

A touching moment of the show came when Tyler Perry presented Anita Baker with the Lifetime Achievement Award, and Foxx sang a medley of her greatest hits.

You remember that our own Davido and Tiwa Savage were nominated for best international act award and we can’t help but be glad that our own Davido won the best award and it was such a great honour, that’s another gist that will come up later.
