Sarkodie Won 'Best International Flow' at the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards
The Ghanaian rapper is the first-ever winner of the newly created category.
Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie had a memorable night at the BET Hip Hop Awards this past weekend, which saw some of the biggest names in rap music gather in Atlanta for a jam-packed show.
The rapper beat out the likes of Falz the Bahd Guy, Ghetts and Little Simz, Nasty C and Tory Lanez to take home the award for the newly created 'Best International Flow' category.
The artist dedicated the award to his daughter, Titi and used his acceptance speech to urge audience members to take a trip to Ghana during the year of return. "I think Africa has always had it and it is about that time. This year is the Year of Return and I would urge each and every one of you here to take a trip back home," said the artist. He was presented the award by Ugandan Get Out star, Daniel Kaluuya.
Several artists, including Wizkid, Stonebwoy, Joey B, actorVan Vicker and more took to social media to congratulate Sarkodie on his big win.
From what we can tell. The night was packed with several memorable appearances and performances. One of our favorite moments (that's been making the rounds on social media) is whatever is happening in these pictures of hip hop "it girl" Megan the Stallion (who won Best Mixtape for Fever) and Daniel Kaluuya. Just look at them:
It looks like there will be several more highlights to come when the full show airs on BET on Tuesday, October 8, so stay tuned.
