Organisers of the awards revealed Friday that Sarkodie will be one of the artistes who will perform at the 2015 BET Experience.
The rapper has been nominated in the Best International Act: Africa category.
The BET Experience takes place during the BET Awards weekend and brings together thousands of music lovers for a four-day, jam-packed entertainment festival that features some of the world’s best music performers.
