I didnâ€™t criticise BET out of malice â€“ Yemi AladeBy bobricky 10:42 Sat, 04 Jul 2015 Comments
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.
â€œTo 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.
â€œIt 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,â€ she said.
