BET share the casting call on Wednesday, December 11th, 2019 for talents, the location is Newark, New Jersey on Friday and Saturday. The network has pushed for the representation of black entertainers in movies, music and more, over the years, and it’s a strong platform for the unearthing of talents in the United States.

It has also given the platform for more African musicians including Stonebwoy, Burna Boy, Davido, Sjava and more to be exposed to the international market. Its annual awards show nominates more talents in different categories, with African acts fully represented mostly in the Best International Acts categories.
However, it has received many criticisms for presenting awards to African musicians at the Backstage. That’s gradually changing as African musicians now receive the awards on stage at the main show.
