Ghanaian musician/songwriter/ producer, Willie Roi, is creating some pandemonium and courting such bad press for reiterating the point that, BET Awards’ resolve to hand over awards to African is disrespectful and a sham – www.entertainmentgh.com can state!
On Peace FM’s ‘Entertainment Review’, the veteran musician also stated that, the likes of Stonebwoy, who won the Best International Act- Africa in 2015 and is in contention for this year’s prize, lack confidence.
Interestingly, the winners of that category do not look or sound like they lack confidence. They still command the biggest following, garners the biggest shows and endorsement deals and are releasing No.1 chart-topping songs.

2011 – D’Banj and Tuface
2012 – Wizkid and Sarkodie
2013 – Ice Prince
2014 – Davido
2015 – Stonebwoy
