When a fan asked Bow Wow why he wanted to help BET, he responded that saying that he knows what the station needs.
“Because BET means so much to me. [It] helped launch careers. Its sad to see where they at. Its sad to see celebs not caring about the awards. Its said that THEY ALWAYS GET TROLLED CONSTANTLY. I see whats missing. They are NOT LISTENING TO THE VIEWERS. it starts there.”
He added that BET forgot what made them such a great network.
“BET forgot what made them HOT! The MUSIC!!! breaking artist etc… music shows that mattered. Now its like lifetime. Just a bunch of sitcoms. Do you know the only time there is music on BET IS when there is an award show? Think about that. Like 3 x out the year. Thats crazy!”
