When you desire something, you bid for it or declare your intent and Afrobeat/reggae-dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy did just that on varied social media platforms lobbying to be a nominee for the Best International Act: Africa for the 2017 BET Awards.

That campaign using his publicist, Elorm Beenie and other social media influencers coupled with his released tunes and videos have landed him the nomination going against:

WIZKID (Nigeria)

TEKNO (Nigeria)

EAZI (Nigeria)

DAVIDO (Nigeria)


AKA (South Africa)



Having won the ‘Best International Act – Africa’ at the 2015 BET Awards, Mr. Satekla reckons his works put him in the lead to scoop the 2017 edition.

Read his submission below:

@Stonebwoyb deserves a 2nd @BET @BET_Intl Nomination & Win!!! He has done a lot in 2016 CONTINENTALLY and GLOBALLY than any other Ghanaian Musician and he’s still breaking NEW GROUNDS with MAJOR CONNECTS. Running his own Global Territorial Tours (#GoHigherTour) in #USA and #Australia is NO JOKE!!! He played the most African shows in 2017 than any other.

This 2017 alone he has worked his way on 3 major international albums “Transition” by @iamjemere Morgan and “Break The World” by @FayAnnLyons that shot to N.o 2 and N.o 3 positions respectively in the World @Billboard Charts for weeks. And next week, he is listed for @MorganHeritage’s new album #Avrakedabra which drops May 19 (Grammy Award Group’s album).

And as I am typing this now, he is recording with #GRAMMY WINNING PRODUCER @TonyCDKelly. Brother deserves a nomination and a win into #BET2017 (again).

Placing all the FACTS, TRUTHS here. The records are there to show!!! Bhimnation #ComeFromFar #Wogbejeke#StonebwoyForBET2017 #BET #Billboard#Ghana #BhimNation
