LOS ANGELES - The Black Entertainment Television (BET) awards take place in Los Angeles this weekend and South Africa's Mafikizolo are up for Best International Act.

The duo recently won an MTV Africa Music Award for Best Group.

Some of the biggest names in entertainment will gather at the BET Awards on Sunday, including African stars like Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie and Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage, who will go up against Mafikizolo for the Best International Act.

In 2012, Sarkodie won a BET Award for the Best International Act.

But all three will also get to perform during the BET experience, marking the first time Mafikizolo play America.
