Hailliote Nyameye Sumney, the Ghanaian TV personality has been announced as the host of the 2019 BET Awards Red Carpet which will come off on Sunday, 23rd June 2019 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, USA.
Hailliote Sumney’s appointment came as a result of her affiliation with 4syte TV which has been invited to cover the red carpet for the events’ viewers across Africa.
Being a presenter with 4Syte TV, the network, in turn, picked her to run the show for the millions of viewers who will be watching the 2019 Black Entertainment Awards (BET) from Africa.
Although Ghana missed out in getting a nomination again this year for the Best International Acts category, the appointment of Hailliote Sumney gives Ghana a fair presentation at the most popular award scheme.
Speaking with Graphic Showbiz, Hailliote Sumney said:
“I’m so excited about Sunday’s show because I was there last year and the experience was great. As was the case last year, there are no nominations this year but I’m happy I will be on the red carpet to make Ghana proud.”
