Tkay Maidza‘s meteoric rise is showing no signs of slowing, with the Aussie singer/songwriter nominated for the 2016 BET ‘Viewer’s Choice Best New International Act’ award.
The BET awards were established in 2001 to celebrate African Americans and other minority groups in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment on an annual basis.
Maidza’s nomination comes off the back of her biggest collaboration to date, with US producer Martin Solveig on the track Do It Right and after the huge success of her 2015 single M.O.B.
The Zimbabwe-born singer is nominated alongside the likes of Section Boyz and WSTRN (both England), Nigera’s Falz, South African nominee Emtee and MHD who hails form France.
The BET Awards will take place in Los Angeles on June 26th. Head here to vote.
