Ice Prince Wins BET Best International Act (Africa) 2013 Award

If you haven't heard yet, our boy 'Ice Prince' picked up the 2013 Best International Act (Africa) Award tonight in Hollywood, California. Although, he wasn't called up for the award, at least, they didn't call up winners from other continents as well as a few other awards, so that's enough consolation.

Oh by the way, the camera fell on Ice Prince and his crew as soon as Don Cheadle started talking about Nelson Mandela. lol! Here's hoping they're not seeing us as "the beautiful country of Africa", in the words of Rick Ross on twitter a few days ago.

Back to the Award itself, I think Ice Prince has worked hard to get to where he is right now, and fully deserves this award. I'm convinced there's lots more to come from Chocolate City's Poster Child.

Shout-out to BET for, yet again, recognizing the growth of African music, and Naija music in particular.
