I didn’t criticise BET out of malice – Yemi Alade

Delectable songstress, Yemi Alade, has stated the reason

she lashed out at the organisers of the prestigious BET

Awards. The singer said far from seeing her action as a

result of malice, she felt African artistes deserve better.

“To be honest, we do not want to talk about the BET saga

again. The reason I voiced out was because I felt Africans

deserve better treatment; we put a lot of work into our craft

and we deserve to be celebrated like our colleagues abroad.

They should not just nominate Africans and give us our

awards in private, we should also be celebrated and mix

with our colleagues abroad. Beyond the ceremony and

party, mingling with our colleagues at such events would

also help us make new friends.

“It would be funny for people to say that my remark on

social media was because I did not win the award. That

would be a very wrong thought. The communication with

them was not so pleasant. They made it look as if they

were doing us a favour. My thought on whether I would be

nominated again at the BET Awards is very simple, God

blesses and not man. If God keeps blessing me, you cannot

hate but join the party,” she said.
