With the #EndSARS and #BlackLivesMatter protests reaching fever pitch in 2020, it was only right for the BET to have a Political Cypher featuring artists who could relate with both movements. No better place to find them than in Africa. The 2020 BET African Cypher cast includes 6 rappers from 5 countries across 3 geographical regions: West Africa, East Africa, and Southern Africa.

In related news Stormzy beat top International rappers like Djonga (Brazil), Kaaris (France), Khaligraph Jones (Kenya), Meryl (France), Ms Banks (UK) and Nasty C (South Africa) to the Best International Flow award, presented by last year’s inaugural winner, Sarkodie.
