Nailah misses out on BET award despite best effort of fans

Despite the best efforts by fans, Nailah Blackman did not cop the "Best New International Act" category of this year's BET Awards.

Blackman faced a field of 10 other nominees from Brazil, Nigeria, the UK, France, South Korea, South Africa and Ghana.

The award went to Sjava of South Africa.

The award is a people's choice award as fans were asked to register their votes on Instagram and the BET website.

The annoucement was made on the BET website prior to tonight's BET Awards in Los Angeles.
