Eek! BET Awards List of Winners Accidentally Leaked

Erm, oops…

Well, it’s not just you who is struggling to get through this working week. Spare a thought for the poor people at BET who accidentally leaked a list of the BET award winners on their own website – one week before the actual awards show takes place on 25 June in LA!

Ouch – now that beats accidentally liking your ex’s new girlfriend’s IG post while you’re busy with a stalking sesh! But what really caught our attention is that in the leak, our very own Nasty C was listed as the winner of Best International Act: Africa award. They’ve since taken the list down, but not before some trusty Twitter followers saved the moment:

In an official announcement, BET organisers stated that ‘An unforeseen technical issue on BET.com’s BET Awards page resulted in several categories revealing randomly selected nominees as winners. We apologise for the confusion to all of the artists affected and to our fans, and we look forward to celebrating this year’s winners at the BET Awards LIVE from LA on 25 June in the US and airing … in Africa on Tuesday, 27 June.’

This means we’ll have to wait ’till next week to know if we can pop the bubbly with Nasty C. Yvonne Chaka Chaka will be honoured and other local nominees, including Amanda Black and Babes Wodumo, are expected to be in attendance. We can’t wait!

View all of the nominees here on the BET website.
