With top acts like Beyonce, Ice Spice, Kendrick, Wizkid, Tems, Burna Boy and many more all bagging nominations at the BET Awards 2023, the full list of winners in major categories has been confirmed.

Burna Boy, the Afrofusion powerhouse, secured the prestigious award for Best International Act. With his signature style that effortlessly blends genres and his ability to captivate audiences with his distinct sound, Burna Boy continues to be a global ambassador for African music.

Tems also received an award in the Best Collaboration category for her contribution on the Grammy award-winning song, Wait For U with Future and Drake.

One of the other Nigerian artists who was in the running for an award was Asake. However, the YBNL star lost out to Cameroonian vocal diva Libianca.

Libianca won the BET 2023 Best International New Act award ahead of Nigerian singer Asake and other African artists. Other nominees included Flo and Raye from the UK, Camidoh from Ghana, Maureen and Werenoi from France, MC Ryan SP from Brazil, and Pabu Cooper from South Africa.

However, this win by Libianca has sparked reactions in the Nigerian social media space, as many have described it as daylight robbery.

The winners of the 2023 BET Awards have undoubtedly solidified their places as icons and trendsetters in their respective fields.
