Shortly after winning two SAMAs, it has been confirmed that rapper Emtee has been nominated for a BET Award.

There’s no doubt that 2016 has been Emtee’s year. After winning 'Song of the Year' at the 2016 SAMAs, Emtee has now bagged himself a BET Nomination in the Best International Act category.

Emtee is the fourth South African artist to be nominated for this year’s BET Awards.

Since the announcement, Emtee has seen nothing but support flowing from fellow artists and industry peers.

Cassper Nyovest said he is placing his vote on Emtee to show his support and patriotism for a fellow South African artist.

#IPickEmtee !!! South Africa let's go get that BET!!! Get behind your own and vote!!!!
