Stormzy (UK) awarded Best International Flow beating Khaligraph Jones at the 2020 BET Hip Hop awards
Khaligraph Jones loses Best International Flow hip hop award to the United Kingdom’s Stormzy at the just concluded award ceremony. Kenya’s Jones had been nominated under the Best International Flow category alongside nominees from France, South Africa, The United Kingdom and Brazil.
The Best International Flow category seeks to recognise and reward artists from around the world. The BET Awards is an annual award show established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television (BET) network to celebrate African Americans in the fields of Art, Music, Sports and other fields of entertainment.
However, Africa did not lose out entirely as Burna Boy won Best International Act. In his performance at the award show, Burna Boy alongside Coldplay’s Chris Martin paid tribute to the victims of SARS.
None the less, Khaligraph Jones remains one of Kenya’s top rappers. He was nominated alongside Djonga (Brazil), Kaaris (France), Meryl (France), Ms Banks (UK) and Nasty C (South Africa).
