Tems, Wizkid among 2022 BET Awards winners (Full List)

Health & Science
 Nigerian singer Tems. 

The BET Awards, which honour black entertainers in music, acting, culture, and sports, were presented on Sunday.

Actress Taraji P. Henson was the event's host, which kicked off with Lizzo performing her latest hit, "About Damn Time."

Nigerian singers Tems and Wizkid were among the Africans who won awards, with the 'Try Me' singer bagging two awards.

Born Temilade Openiyi, Tems won the Best International Act and Best Collaboration for Wizkid's 'Essence' remix featuring Justin Bieber.

In her acceptance speech, Tems, who was beautifully dressed in black, thanked the BET and recognized Wizkid, saying, "this award really is for Wiz and Africa, and I just wanna say that a great thing is happening out of Africa."

Tems had bagged three nominations making her the first African to get the most nominations in a year.

Doja Cat was the leading nominee with six nods, followed by Drake and Ari Lennox with four each — however, all three artistes got zero wins.

Sean "Diddy" Combs received a lifetime achievement award. Will Smith, who became a subject of controversy after slapping Chris Rock on stage at the Academy Awards, won the BET Award for best actor.
