Donald & Toya DeLazy Get BET Awards Nominations
Kendrick Lamar & Tamar Braxton from “Braxton Family Values” announced the official list of nominees for the 12th annual BET Awards at a press confrence in Los Angeles on Tuesday & South Africa’s very own Pop diva Toya DeLazy & Dance crooner Donald were both nominated in the same category for the “Best International Act: Africa”!
Toya DeLazy, who was snubbed for the Metro FM awards, just came off the excitement of winning 3 SAMAs just last Saturday while Donald & the rest of South Africa were disappointed because he didn’t win a single one. They will go up against Nigerian stars 2Face Idibia and Ice Prince, Ghana’s R2Bees and Ugandian Radio and Weasel.
Just like Lira, Teargas & HHP were alble to do in previous years both Toya & Donald manage to catch the eye of the BET nomination panel and jut like them they will also be jetting out to the United States Of America in June to attend the ceremony. They were clearly elated when they announced on Twitter yesterday (14 May):
“I don’t know if I’m tripping but I just found out I’m nominated for best international act Africa at the BET Awards in LA !!! Salute :D”
