Ghanaian-British afrobeats icon Fuse ODG

UK afrobeats star Fuse ODG has won many awards during his career, including an MTV AMA for afro pop song of the year, but there is one accolade the TINA hitmaker will not be displaying on his mantelpiece – a BET award.

Despite being nominated for Best International Act - UK at the 2015 BET awards, the superstar snubbed the ceremony. Instead, the Antenna singer made a surprise appearance at Glastonbury 2015.

Taking to social media to explain his reactions, he revealed he was a no-show at the Microsoft Centre event in Los Angeles as BET does not showrespect to musicians in the various International Act categories.

The 27 year old's comment provoked a strong response from the online community and was retweeted over 3000 times.

Fuse, whose real name is Nana Richard Abiona, lost this year's Best International Act – UK award to another UK-based Ghanaian, Stormzy.

He is not the first star to attack the show in recent weejs.

In May, rapper Azealia Banks, who was nominated for best female hip-hop artist, criticsed BET for seemingly celebrating the same artists year after year.

"I really hate getting nominated for @BET awards. They're so bogus," Banks began. "The female rap award at the bet awards goes to nicki every year, it's not even a real award anymore lol it's a bit of a running joke."
