Established by Black Entertainment Television, the BET Awards recognises the best in African American culture, by maintaining an international category for black music from outside the United States.
Davido who was the first African-based artist to appear on stage to receive the award for the BET Best International Actin thanked his fans in Nigeria for the constant endorsement.
Describing the African continent as “blessed” he called on the predominantly African American A-list celebrities audience to come to Africa and enjoy some of the good things on the continent.
“I’m telling you guys — come to Africa, eat the food, wear the clothes.”
He also called for a greater collaboration between celebrities: “Let’s collaborate, everybody. Let’s collaborate, man.”
Davido has received a total of 39 awards from 74 nominations since 2011 when he dropped his major album.
