Davido joins Fireboy DML as the only Afrobeats artists to do this at the BET Awards
Davido has been handed a special role at the BET Awards, which will happen today, Sunday, June 25, 2023, in the US.
David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has confirmed his participation in the BET Awards 2023 through his social media platform. The acclaimed singer and performer expressed his excitement and revealed that he would be one of the performers at the event. This announcement carries significant weight, as the BET Awards is a prestigious ceremony dedicated to celebrating black excellence in various fields, including music, film, sports, and more.
By securing a performance slot at the BET Awards, Davido joins the ranks of esteemed artists who have graced the stage in previous years. This opportunity highlights his talent and global recognition as an afrobeats artist. He will be among the select few representing the vibrant afrobeats genre at this prominent gathering of black artists and entertainers.
Davido will not be alone in showcasing the rich sounds of afrobeats at the BET Awards 2023. He will, however not be the first Afgrobeats artist to perform on the award stage as Fireboy DML, who is under the YBNL record label umbrella, became the first to hit the stage a feat he accomplished in 2022.
As fans eagerly anticipate the BET Awards 2023, Davido's presence and performance promise to be one of the highlights of the evening. His participation further solidifies his position as a leading figure in the afrobeats genre and demonstrates the international impact of Nigerian music.
This is definitely a performance that would be building up to his North America Timeless tour scheduled to kick off on July 1, 2023, in the US as well.
