Beyonce Knowles Bet Awards

It's that time of year again where the Black Entertainment Television Awards arrive at the Microsoft Theater in LA to honour some of the greatest black superstars of our time. Unsurprisingly, Beyonce and Drake took home the most awards with three and four respectively but it was Michael B. Jordan and Taraji P. Henson who stole the show for the film honours.

Beyonce was named Best Female R&B/Pop Artist last night (June 26th 2016), two months after the release of her much talked about number one album 'Lemonade'. The video for the album's first single 'Formation' also went on to win her Video of the Year, the Coca-Cola Viewers' Choice Award and the Centric Award.

Unsurprisingly, it was Kanye West who landed the coveted Visionary Award at the event which he attended alongside his reality star wife Kim Kardashian. While the multi-Platinum rapper may be one of the best modern popstars, having released his sixth consecutive number one album 'Yeezus' two years ago, he's hardly going to win any prizes for modesty. Despite himself, he quipped to the audience upon receiving his award, 'I understand what it is to be humbled for the first time'.
