Since its inception in 2019, the BET HipHop Awards have become a platform to recognize and celebrate the diverse talents in the global hip-hop scene. Particularly noteworthy is the “Best International Flow” category, which spotlights exceptional artists beyond the United States.
In 2019, Ghana’s own Sarkodie made history as the inaugural winner of the category. Known for his lyrical prowess and impactful presence in the African music scene, Sarkodie’s achievement marked a significant moment for Ghanaian music on the international stage.
The following year, in 2020, Stormzy, the acclaimed British-Ghanaian rapper, claimed the honor. With a unique blend of grime and hip-hop, Stormzy’s win reinforced the global impact of artists with Ghanaian roots.
Fast forward to 2023, and another Ghanaian luminary has entered the prestigious list. Black Sherif, with his distinctive sound and thought-provoking lyrics, secured the “Best International Flow” title, continuing the trend of Ghanaian musicians making waves globally.
These victories not only underscore the richness of Ghana’s musical landscape but also highlight the global recognition and influence of its artists. As the BET HipHop Awards continue to evolve, the “Best International Flow” category remains a stage where Ghanaian musicians showcase their exceptional talents to the world.
