Though Yuna Zarai doesn’t reside in Malaysia, she’s forever making us proud elsewhere and this time it’s no exception.
The singer recently got nominated for the 2017 BET Centric Award for her hit track “Crush” ft. Usher, making her the first ever Malaysian to be nominated for the American BET Awards.
In 2016, the winner for the BET Centric Award was none other than powerhouse Beyoncé’s “Formation” and it would be a HUGE honour if Yuna were to take her place for 2017.
