66th Grammys: African music category long overdue – Davido

Nigerian singer David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, expressed his satisfaction with the introduction of an African music category at the prestigious global music awards, the Grammys. He emphasized that such recognition was long overdue for the African music industry.

The Grammys recently established the Best African Music Performance category for their 66th edition, featuring nominees such as Davido, Burna Boy, Asake, Ayra Starr, Olamide, and South Africa’s Tyla and Musa Keys.

During an interview with Billboard’s Tetris Kelly at the Pre-Grammy show, Davido highlighted the importance of celebrating African music, citing iconic artists like Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade. He expressed his belief that introducing an African category earlier would have provided more opportunities for African artists to be recognized by the Grammys.

Davido expressed his excitement about being nominated for the first time and receiving three nominations. He emphasized the significance of the Best African Music Performance category and expressed his gratitude for its inclusion.

The winner of the Best African Music Performance award will be announced at the Grammy Award Premiere Ceremony held at the Peacock Theatre in Los Angeles.
