The BET Awards were filled with tear-jerking, LOL-worthy, and downright brilliant moments. From Meek Mill’s emotionally-driven verse about police brutality to the moment when Davido became Africa’s PR agent, when he delivered his acceptance speech, here are our top 5 moments from the 2018 BET Awards.
When Meek Mill gave his first big post-jail performance
The last time we saw Meek Mill he was on The View talking about the injustice he experienced from the US legal system. Using that energy, Meek Mill took to the BET stage with Miguel to perform a powerful song titled, “Stay Woke.”
That time when Jamie Foxx had us in our feels about XXX Tentacion’s passing
Foxx had us in our feels as he talked about the untimely passing of promising, young rapper XXX Tentacion’s death.
When Khaled and Asahd accepted their award for Best Collaboration
Wild Thoughts dominated the airwaves last year, so we were really excited when Khaled received the award. But, what really got us glued to our screen was seeing the “young icon” Asahd join his dad, and at one stage the hardest working kid in showbiz even reached for the mic. Too bad he can’t say anything else but ‘Dada’ and ‘Mama’ at this stage.
When Yolanda Adams, Marsha Ambrosius, and Ledisi paid tribute to Anita Baker
Anita Baker is, arguably, the Queen of Smooth RnB and Soul Jazz, so we were thrilled when she took home the Lifetime Achievement award. To pay tribute to Baker, Soul singers like Marsha Ambrosius took to the stage to perform Baker’s classic hits.
When Davido became Africa’s publicist
We should really employ Davido as the spokesperson for the continent!
