Award season is upon us and just as everyone is forgetting about Black History Month, the Black Entertainment Film, Fashion, Television and Arts awards will be hitting the Hippodrome at Golders Green next Saturday for an invite only event.

The BEFFTA’s not only celebrates the black music or film industry it also celebrates the best in fashion and art. You will remember that Pappzd Magazine was nominated in the Best Blog category last year.

Lady Leshurr, Princess Nyah, Yolanda Brown and Misha B are up for the Best Female while Angel, Wiley and Scorcher are running for Best Male in the music industry.

In fashion, Kgtkkt Couture, Zekaryas Solomon are up for Best Male Designers and Anita Quansah, House of Adjeiwaah are up for Best Female Designers.

BEFFTA do like to really drill down with their categories. Last year they had a Best Beauty Queen, Best Former Beauty Queen, Best Former Beauty Queen That is Still in the Country and also a Best Beauty Queen’s Favourite Former Beauty Queen category. Or something like that.

Noel Clarke and Patrick Campbell are up for Best Film directors and Ashley Walters is up for Best TV Actor.

If like us, you can’t wait for the MOBO Awards next month, get to the BEFFTA Awards next Saturday and celebrate the end of Black History Month in style.
