Last year, the world experienced history with the first ever All African Cypher, which was created by BET International to demonstrate how the hip-hop movement and culture spanned way beyond the shores of the US and extended its impact to the continent of Africa. The cypher, which featured some of the hottest rappers in Ghana, was performed in four languages. Heavy weight artists such as 2011 BET Awards nominee, D-Black, founder of the Ghanaian Hiplife movement, Reggie Rockstone, Kwaku T, Tinny, BabyG, Ayigbe Edem and Ghana’s fastest rapper, Sarkodie, all caught worldwide attention with their amazing delivery when they appeared on the 2010 International broadcast of the BET Hip-Hop Awards.
This historical event created a sensational viral frenzy and an unprecedented buzz in the entertainment industry. With such incredibly positive feedback from the press and the public, it seemed only natural that BET International executives, Michael Armstrong and Ava Hall would decide to incorporate an African Cypher into the International broadcast of the BET Hip-Hop Awards once again.
