Oladapo Fagbenle, a.k.a Daps, is a Nigerian director who rose to fame this year for shooting Migos ‘Bad and Boujee”. Recently, he recounted how he was bounced from the BET awards last year when he went with Wizkid and Sesan .
This year he was nominated for best video though he didn’t win, he walked the red carpet in full attendance.
An elated Daps took to his instagram page to give a piece of his mind.
Exactly one year ago, I went to the BET awards with @wizkidayo & @sesandirector. Rushed to the Beverly Center to buy an outfit & everything. FRESH! We pulled up to the red carpet & the sun hit my beard… I knew it was going to be a good day. Long story short, I was denied entry – no pass for me. Shit was so embarrassing… I had to delete my snaps & play it off like I had somewhere else to be. Wiz & Ses felt bad & I trekked to the other side of the Staples center to call an Uber home. I sat in the Uber contemplating how I was gonna shit on everybody… grind mode activated. Yesterday I was nominated for 2 BET awards with my people @migos. Didn’t win video of the year (congrats Beyoncé) or viewers choice award (congrats… Beyoncé), but it’s all good. Shoutout to my guys for winning The Best Group award tho. What a difference one year makes. Don’t fold. The 🌊 is unlimited
One would say that his post has been a source of inspiration and motivation.
He also directed Wizkid’s Closer and Davido’s ‘Fall’
