Teargas Nominated for a BET Award! Aweh!

South Africans will be proud to know that hip hop group Teargas will be flying our flag in Hollywood on 26th June 2011.

That’s right, KO, Ma-E and Bantu have been nominated for an award in the Best International Act African category at the Black Entertainment Television (BET) awards. They are up against heavyweights Fally Ipupa (Congo), 2Face (Nigeria), D’Banj (Nigeria), Angelique Kidjo (Benin) and D-Black (Ghana).

The Washington D.C.-based cable network  is the most prominent television network targeting young black Americans. The nomination and possible win (we’re holding thumbs!) will place Teargas on a global platform. Most of the programming on the network features mainstream rap and R&B content, as well as, urban movies and series.

Standing tall, this South African trio continues to keep good music thriving.

The nomination comes on the heels of their recent SAMA nominations for Best Urban DVD and Best Music Video. The band are also currently on a nationwide tour with house duo Liquideep and hip-hop artist HHP.

The BET awards are scheduled to to take place in Los Angeles on 26 June and will be hosted by American actor and comedian Kevin Hart.
