Another entertainment year has been knocked by the Covid 19 Pandemic, leading to most events virtually including the 2021 BET Awards. Even though I stated that it was virtual, a limited VVIP access physical event happened from the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles where the show was filmed live last night.
Taraji P. Henson is hosting the awards gave it a different reaction and review from the public viewers from her comic jokes to the sorrow lamentations about the life of black society in America a topic that was well pillared by Yara Shahidi in her speech.
The beauty, fashion, and glamour that was witnessed at this year’s BET Awards was truly special and gave hope of us enjoying life after the pandemic is completely over. From the Zendaya outfits to Lil Nas X and Megan Stallion perfection in fashion choice.
Megan Thee Stallion didn’t come to play this year as she scooped Four (4) BET Awards including; Best Female Hip Hip Artist, Viewers Choice Award, Video of the year (WAP), and Best Collaboration featuring Cardi B.
A warm heart-filling tribute performance to Dmx from method man and swizz beats left the house in memories and gratification of the work Dark Man X left plus the change and influence he created.
The awarding show went above the bars when performances from Lil Nas X, H.E.R, City Girls, Roddy Ricch, the Migos, and Cardi B broke the internet over the night due to the acts and costumes used. Beenie Man And MYA also blessed the night with their Girls Dem Sugar virtually from Jamaica.
