Over the weekend, we reported that “UK-based Ghanaian act FUSE ODG has taken a swipe at the organizers of the BET Awards for what he says is total disrespect towards musicians in the various International Act categories.
In a tweet Sunday shortly after he lost out on this year’s Best International Act – UK award, FUSE said:
“… the reason why i didn’t come is because you give awards backstage. You have no respect for our hard work and achievements.”
BET International had enough of the claims that they presented the award to Stonebwoy backstage. In a response to Fuse ODG’s rant ,they tweeted “See
@Stormzy1 @stonebwoyb pick up their awards on the MAIN STAGE tonight 9PM BST/10PM CAT #NoBackstageAwards” and mentioned Fuse.
The tweet was for the African audience to watch the award show and judge for themselves whether Stonebwoy and Stormzy were awarded on stage or backstage.
