Yemi Alade tackles man who said Wizkid made BET to stop giving Africans’ award backstage

Yemi Alade

Yemi Alade, a popular Nigerian singer, has denied a fan’s claim that Wizkid deserved credit for convincing BET to start awarding African performers on stage.

It all started after the 2023 BET prizes, when Yemi observed that, eight years after she complained about Africans being forced to accept their prizes backstage, this no longer occurs.

Remember Yemi and Wizkid’s complaint in 2015 about how BET organizers treated African musicians.

The ‘Johnny’ crooner tweeted; “8 years later , we no longer receive awards back stage at award ceremonies.

We are on the main guest lists and Our categories are not skipped on live TVor feed/streams. 2015 and2016 was a different time. Thank you BET for stepping up!!! Afrobeats to the world.”

In reaction, the man rephrased a part of her tweet and inserted Wizkid’s name suggesting that he should be the one to get the accolades.

“Let me rephrase “Thank You Wizkid for fighting for African artistes to be respected.”

If Wiz didn’t reject BET backstage award that year, it would’ve still been happening,” he wrote.

However, Yemi Alade challenged the fan and said he was trying to rewrite the past. She recalled being blacklisted for saying the truth.

The singer wrote; “No matter how you want rewrite the past, YOU SIMPLY CANNOT!Selective omittion is still false information. I was blacklisted and still am for saying the truth… I’m not gifting you with silence today,try tmrw.”
