blame it on Wongo June 24, 2018

The 2018 BET Awards are now live while the award show doesn’t have the same attention it had from year’s past, but just like any other award show, seeing artists get well-deserved awards for their work is still interesting.

With a total of 4 nominations, SZA secured the Best New Artist award (which she should’ve won at the Grammy’s, but welp) and while his album was mid and a half, DJ Khaled won the Best Collaboration Award for “Wild Thoughts” with Rihanna & Brsyon Tiller. The award show also honored the legendary Anita Baker by giving her the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Other winners include Migos for Best Group, Davido for Best International Act, & Tiffany Haddish for Best Actress.

As the show progresses we’ll update the award winners. Check out the list below.
