Davido Becomes The Second Afrobeats Act To Perform At The BET Awards

On Sunday, June 25, 2023, the BET Awards will take place in the US. Davido has been given a unique role. David Adeleke, best known by his stage as Davido, has announced on his social media that he will attend the 2023 BET Awards.

The well-known singer and performer acknowledged his enthusiasm and said he will be one of the artists at the occasion. This statement has a lot of weight because the BET Awards is a prestigious event that honors black excellence across a range of industries, including music, cinema, sports, and more.

Davido joins the ranks of acclaimed performers who have graced the stage in past years by securing a performance slot at the BET Awards. This opportunity showcases his talent and global afrobeats recognition. At this prestigious gathering of black musicians and entertainers, he will be among the select few representing the booming afrobeats genre.

At the BET Awards 2023, Davido will not be alone in displaying the rich sounds of afrobeats. He will not, however, be the first Afrobeats musician to perform on the award stage, as Fireboy DML, who is signed to the YBNL record label, was the first to do so in 2022.

His participation cements his position as a key player in the afrobeats genre and proves Nigerian music’s international reach. Watch his performance below.
