BET Awards 2020: (Full List of Winners and Nominees)

BET Awards 2020

Every year, celebrities from around the world come together for the BET Awards. The BET Awards 2020 was no exception, as the show was streamed live by millions around the world. This isn’t always the case before now as the award ceremony was broadcasted on the BET channel, but due to health concerns, we had to settle for an online show.

Notwithstanding, it was fun, although we couldn’t see those wonderful performances we are used to. This 2020 BET Award which was hosted by Amanda Seales, saw entertainers from all works of life going home with their award(s).

Back home, Nigerians were not left out of the party as the likes of Burna Boy, Wizkid, Rema and a host of others did bring home some goodies.

Here we go;
