Organizers of the BET Awards, Viacom International Media Networks Africa are also aware of the predicament Babes is in and are pulling all their resources to help Babes secure her travel requirements in a speedy manner.
However, the American Embassy has stated that special interviews are only granted to VIP’s whereas Babes only falls under the category of normal citizens.
