The 2024 BET Awards sparked a heated argument after Tyla won the Best New Artist award, prompting many to question whether Sexyy Red was unfairly bypassed.

The 2024 BET Awards crowned a rising star, but not everyone is pleased with their choice.

As Tyla stepped up to accept her award, the room erupted in applause, but social media didn’t take long to spark a heated debate. The South African singer, best known for her hit single “Water,” has undoubtedly impacted the music industry this year. However, Sexyy Red’s fans are insistent that their favorite artist was more deserving of the recognition.

Tyla’s undeniable talent and meteoric rise are difficult to ignore. Her debut single, “Water,” was a worldwide success, enthralling fans with its catchy hooks and vibrant vibe. Her combination of pop, R&B, and Afrobeat elements has carved out a distinct niche in the music industry.

Sexyy Red, real name Janae Nierah Wherry, has had an explosive year with her viral hits “Pound Town,” “Get It Sexyy,” “Free My Babydaddy,” and a slew of successful collaborations that have topped the charts. Her bold style and unapologetic ‘ratche’ lyrics have struck a chord with a large audience, earning her a devoted following.

The debate goes beyond personal preferences. Some viewers highlight Sexyy Red’s impressive streaming numbers and viral presence. In contrast, others praise Tyla’s global appeal and thrilling live performances.

“It should’ve went to Sexyy she has too many bangers… vs Tyla and that damn Water sweat song,” a fan commented.

“Sexy DEFINITELY should’ve won that, if not at least bossman Dlow,” another added.

A fan said, “The audience was screaming for Sexyy before they announced a completely different winner. I hate awkward stuff like that.”

The Viewer Verdict is currently divided. Was Tyla’s win appropriate for her breakout year, or was Sexyy Red unfairly overlooked? Only time will tell as both artists keep rising and making their mark in the music industry.
