The 18th BET Awards Ceremony was held at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California on June 24, 2018. The ceremony celebrated achievements in entertainment and honoured various artists in music, sports, television, and movies.
As usual the Best International Act allowed participation from artists from the UK, France, South Africa, Nigeria, The Democratic Republic of Congo.
Other than that, many Africans were caught in a BET Awards Invitation Scam and one of them is Internationally acclaimed Zambian Professional Photographer – Cornelius Chellah Mulenga Tukuta who was falsely invited to host at the 2018 BET Awards Weekend also known as the BET Experience, an exciting multicultural music and entertainment festival which brings together hundreds of thousands of fans, celebrities, and thought leaders.
Another victim of the scam is professional photographer Emmanuel Mwiche who took to social media revealing images which deem the entire invitation as fake, while adding that no Zambian Photographer even went for the award show.

I just want to tell my Zambians to be carful with he internet. Scammers are real. No Zambian Photograoher has gone anywhere to shoot. These BET emails were a scam and BET didn’t approve them. So I guess you now know the truth. pic.twitter.com/u4t3644TrH
