BET Awards 2014 “Best International Act” winner, Davido could not contain his excitement yesterday, Wednesday 16 July 2014, as BET hosted him and Best International Act 2013 winner/2014 BET Experience performer Ice Prince to a lighthearted catch-up with the media.
The upbeat event, which was held at Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa’s office in Ikoyi, Lagos, saw media treated to a luxurious breakfast as they mingled with the BET awards returnees as well as VIMN Africa’s Colette Otusheso, and many others.
Talking during the media chat, Davido said, “When I was hanging out with the other nominees before the awards in LA, I never thought I would win because I have worked with almost everyone on that nomination list, and they are amazing artists. The African category of the Best International Act was a tough one so when I was announced as the winner, I was absolutely stunned and elated!”
A congratulatory Ice Prince also commented on Davido’s win.
“I was really excited when I heard them call Davido’s name… he is a really talented artist and it’s encouraging to see African artists being recognized for their hard work.”
Other talent nominated for the Best International Act – Africa at the BET Award 2014 included Diamond Platnumz from Tanzania, Mafikizolo from South Africa, Sarkodie from Ghana, Toofan from Togo and Nigerian songstress, Tiwa Savage.
