Nicki Minaj is among performers announced for the 2018 BET Awards.

The 'Barbie Tingz' rapper, Janelle Monáe, H.E.R, rap trio Migos and British star Ella Mai are all set to take to the stage at the star-studded bash, held at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater on June 24.

This year's nominations were previously announced with DJ Khaled leading the pack with six nods, while Kendrick Lamar follows closely behind with four.

Hot on their heels are Migos and SZA, with four each, while other notable nominees include Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Cardi B, Bruno Mars, Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Drake.

Last year, the famous producer's son, Asahd, stole the show in a turquoise custom-made Gucci suit after he made an appearance alongside his dad on stage for a performance of his hit 'I'm The One'.

Gushing about his little boy, Khaled said: ''Me and his mommy always keep him around greatness, we always give him joy. We always give him happiness. We always give him love ...

''The way I was raised, my family brought me around what they do, you know what I'm saying? And I'm bringing him out what me and mommy do (SIC).''

Jamie Foxx is set to host the annual ceremony for the second time.

The 'Beat Shazam' presenter previously fronted the awards show in 2009.

Last year's ceremony was fronted by 'Ghostbusters' actress Leslie Jones, while other previous presenters of the awards - which honour musicians, actors, and athletes - have included Chris Rock, Mo'Nique, Kevin Hart and Chris Tucker.
