Kim went to her godmother for guidance and said she asked her, “Yo, why they keep frontin’ on me? Why they won’t give me an award? I want a BET Award, too. I got plenty of other awards.”
“Matter of fact, I got almost every other award. Why they ain’t giving me a black excellence award? I need that.’ I said, ‘I want that.’ She said, ‘Baby, those awards ain’t big enough for you.'”
She realized that this honor superseded anything she desired in the past, and she told the audience to “never underestimate God’s plan.” The spectators cheered throughout her speech.
