Sarkodie is out there, still making impact and taking Ghana Hip hop to such international recognition.
The BET International Artiste laureate has got another nod, in a new category for the 2019 edition of the BET Hip Hop Awards.
Sarkodie has been nominated alongside six other acts, Falz (Nigeria), Ghetts (U.K), Kalash (France), Lil Simz (U.K), Nasty C (South Africa) and Tory Lanez (Canada).
This is however not the rapper’s first nomination from the BET as he has had nominations in 2012, 2014 and 2015.
Out of these three, he won the Best International Act: Africa in 2012.
Here is how www.billboard.com reported it;
On Oct. 5, the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards will make its triumphant return to Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Center after vacationing in Miami for the last two years. After besting his peers with eight nominations in 2018, this year, Drake slides into third place with seven, allowing Cardi B to lead the pack with double-digit honors.
There will be a new category this year dubbed best international flow that will highlight artists from different countries such as Nigeria, UK, France, South Africa, Ghana and Canada.
After notching four wins at last year’s festivities, Cardi looks to clinch more victories this time around with her 10 nominations including MVP of the Year, hot ticket performer, hustler of the year, best collab, single of the year, made-you-look award, and two nods for the best hip-hop video, & sweet 16 categories.
Though Cardi didn’t deliver her sophomore album in 2019, she stayed busy slinging out Hot 100 bangers in “Money,” “Press” and “Please Me.”
There’s a three-way tie for second as DJ Khaled, Travis Scott and J. Cole each nab eight nominations. Despite his passing earlier this year, Nipsey Hussle pulls away with a handful of nods, netting five. As for newcomers, Megan Thee Stallion snags five, while DaBaby closes shop with four.
