Pharrell Williams has taken home two gongs at the BET Awards in Los Angeles.

The rapper was named best R&B artist and also took home the award for video of the year for Happy at Sunday night’s ceremony.

Nicki Minaj claimed the title of the best female hip-hop artist for the fifth year in a row with Jay Z and Beyonce’s Drunk In Love winning the award for the best collaboration.

The awards were held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ceremony included a pre-recorded performance from Jay Z and Beyonce and live appearances from Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Usher, Jhene Aiko and August Alsina.

Chris Rock hosted the ceremony and R&B singer Lionel Richie received a lifetime achievement before taking to the stage himself.

Early in the show, Pharrell Williams was joined by Missy Elliott for an onstage performance of Come Get It Bae, before accepting his awards.
