Nigerian Afropop singer, Yemi Alade recently disclosed that she was redlisted after calling out Black Entertainment Network, BET Award organizers eight years ago.

It may be recalled that in 2015, organizers of the event had fixed the African category hours before the main event and had ordered that winning artists from Africa should be handed over their Awards backstage.

Yemi Alade who was one of the African nominees expressed her displeasure via her Instagram account. She opined that what the event organizers did was shameful and a mockery to the African artistes.

However, a fan with username @jefe_says disagreed with her and gave the credit to Afrobeats superstar, Wizkid.

He tweeted; “Let me rephrase “Thank You Wizkid for fighting for African artistes to be respected. If Wiz didn’t reject BET backstage award that year, it would’ve still been happening”

But in reaction, the singer wrote; “No matter how you want rewrite the past, YOU SIMPLY CANNOT! Selective omission is still false information. I was redlisted and still am for saying the truth… I’m not gifting you with silence today, try tmrw.”
