The BET (Black Entertainment TV) Awards, which celebrate achievements by black artists, was this year based on the theme, “Year of the Black Woman”. The awards held on Sunday at the Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles California, USA were a top drawer as the Awards returned to the live show format and welcomed back an in-person, vaccinated audience along with a red carpet.
Zimbabwe has had a few artists / composers who have been nominated, featured on nominated projects or awarded but most of these are living abroad and are seldom celebrated at home. earGROUND decided to put together a compilation of these amazing creatives and celebrate their strides and recognition.
