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.
Sizwe Dhlomo also wished the young rapper nothing but success, and shared a bit of advice.
Just run B! As fast as you can! Sprint! Lift! Soar @EmteeSA! Don't look or pay attention to anybody.— Sizwe Dhlomo (@SizweDhlomo) June 4, 2016
I'll say it again, I wish EmTee all the riches!— Sizwe Dhlomo (@SizweDhlomo) June 4, 2016

The BET Awards will take place along with the BET Experience in Los Angeles from 23 to 26 June 2016.
