Wizkid Wins At The 2022 BET Awards

Wizkid Wins At The 2022 BET Awards 

At the 2022 BET Awards, held on Sunday, July 26, 2022, Nigerian megastar Wizkid made history as ‘Essence,’ starring Tems and Justin Bieber, and was named the best collaboration.

The victory makes “Essence” the first African song to win a BET award, and Wizkid the first African and Nigerian to win an award outside the Best International Acts category.

As a featured artist on Beyonce’s “Black Skin Girl,” Wizkid has already received the BET HER Award. He does become the first African lead artist to win a category other than the International category with “Essence,” though.

Wizkid has been one of the primary talents driving the global Afrobeats movement over the past ten years, thus it is only natural that he be the artist to shatter the BET category restriction for Nigerian and African musicians.
