“VIP” Rapper Ice Prince Zamani Bags the 2013 BET Award for Best International Act (Africa) | Complete Awards List & Photos from his BET Awards Experience




A huge congratulations to the Nigerian superstar, Ice Prince Zamani who represented to the fullest at the recently concluded BET Awards 2013 last night, 30th June in Los Angeles.

The event was hosted by the veteran comedian/actor, Chris Tucker and saw Ice Prince win the prestigious award for Best International Act – Africa. Unlike the last two years, where two artists shared the BET Award in that category, Ice Prince stood alone this year as the winner.

Amongst a group of very qualified nominees – 2Face Idibia (Nigeria), Radio and Weasel (Uganda), Toya Delazy (South Africa) , Donald (South Africa) and R2Bees (Ghana); the “Aboki” came out at the top. Another congratulations to all the very talented nominees who are representing Africa to the fullest and keep churning out beautiful music.

Check out some photos of BET Award 2013 winner, Ice Prince Zamani at the BET Awards weekend in Los Angeles!

      Thank you for pointing this out. I believe that is quite insulting that they would not present the award on stage to international artistes every year.

    Whether they presented it to him back/front stage or when ever, he still received it, they don’t normally present awards to musicians that are not apart of their citizen/residence or music of different culture on front stage whether it’s at the BET awards or the Grammys always felt a way about it and wondered why. But best part he’s recognized and is sucessful, congrats to Him! Always admired him too 🙂 (y) Ice Prince

    Are we talking about the same BET 2013 awards here? I just watched it last night and Ice Prince DID go up to the stage to collect his award. Or am I getting somn wrong here? He actually asked for the other Nominees to come up and join him on the stage for a picture to be taken…

    • CHINNY

      July 3, 2013 at 10:38 am

      yes, i saw him go up the stage too and he called some out the other nominees to join him for a snap shot.
