Meanwhile, the awards show was recently in the headlines after rapper Lil Nas X accused organisers of snubbing him from the nominations because he was gay.

In response, BET said: "Unfortunately, this year, he was not nominated by BET’s Voting Academy, which is comprised of an esteemed group of nearly 500 entertainment professionals in the fields of music, television, film, digital marketing, sports journalism, public relations, influencers, and creative arts.

“No one from BET serves as a member of the Voting Academy."

Still not happy, the 'Old Town Road' hitmaker replied: "These are literally just buzz words placed together."
