The 2018 BET which held yesterday at the was an award show worth remembering. With Davido carting a great win for Nigeria, the ceremony saw delightful scenes recaptured.

A societally conscious ceremony, the host, Jamie Foxx, added more spice when he brought up Black Panther's Michael B. Jordan to recite the line linked to the Igbo Landing "Bury me in the ocean with my ancestors who jumped from ships, cause they knew death was better than bondage."

Meek Mill also paid homage to the late XXXTentacion during his performance of Stay Woke.

It was an Anita Baker Moment when Tyler Perry presented her with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
