Black Entertainment Africa (BET) network is to honour Senegalese-American singer Akon with a humanitarian award tagged ‘Global good award’.

The Grammy award nominee, multi-platinum selling singer, entrepreneur and philanthropist has been picked by the Awards organisers for his unrelenting effort towards powering his home continent Africa through a solar light up Africa project aimed at providing electricity to millions of homes in Africa.

This marks the second time the Global Good Award as a part of the BET Awards will be honouring individuals championing causes which positively impact change and heighten awareness in different parts of the world.
