Who is hosting the 2023 BET Awards?

From 2021 to 2022, it was Taraji P. Henson who took the stage as host. But in 2023, the identity of the host is still kept under wraps.

According to writer/producer team Chris and Vanessa Spencer, the production of the 2023 BET Awards had taken a hit due to the ongoing WGA strike.

Chris told Bossip: “It hurts, lady! It hurts because usually we’d be writing and producing on the show and the fact that we’re going to have to go watch this concert it’s still exciting because Jesse Collins and Janee and Dionn Harmon and even Stephen Hill who invented this, put together a great show. It’s going to be a great concert but my jokes will be missing this year.”

“And a host will be missing,” Vanessa added.
