Nigerian Artistes Miss Out on Grammy Wins

Nigerian artists Davido, Burna Boy, Ayra Starr, Asake, and Olamide were nominated for the 66th Grammy Awards.

Burna Boy received four nominations, followed by Davido, who received three on his debut.

Asake, Arya Starr, and Olamide received one nomination each.

They were all nominated in the inaugural Best African Music Performance category, alongside South Africa’s Tyla.

Davido and Burna Boy were also nominated for Best Global Music Album and Best Global Music Performance respectively.

Meanwhile, Burna Boy received four nominations for the 66th Grammy Awards, including Best Melodic Rap Performance.

However, none of the Nigerian quintets received nominations on Sunday.

Tyla, a South African singer, received the 2024 Grammy Award for Best African Music Performance during the Grammy Award Premiere Ceremony at the Peacock Theatre in Los Angeles.

She defeated David Adeleke (as Davido), Ahmed Ololade (aka Asake), and Damini Ogulu (aka Burna Boy).

Tyla’s ‘Water’ followed Davido’s ‘Unavailable,’ Asake’s ‘Amapiano,’ Burna Boy’s ‘City Boys,’ and Ayra Starr’s ‘Rush.’
