Libianca Beats Asake To Win BET Award 2023

Libianca and Asake

Popular Cameroonian singer, Libianca beat Nigerian Afrobeats star, Asake to clinch the Best International New Act at the recently-concluded BET Awards.

Nigerian sensation, Burna Boy also made history by securing the Best International Act award for the fourth consecutive time.

Libianca’s victory in the Best International New Act category at the BET Awards 2023 has ignited a wave of reactions across Nigerian social media platforms, with many expressing dissatisfaction and labelling it as “daylight robbery.”

Asake, a talented artist signed under the YBNL label, was one of the contenders for the coveted award.

However, his loss to Libianca has triggered a debate among fans and industry observers.

Some have speculated that Asake’s defeat could be attributed to his predominantly singing in Yoruba, his indigenous language.
