You remember that “they” ganged up against Afrobeats insinuation? Yes, now we have got a “lawyer” to fight Afrobeat’s battle, her name is Naomi Campbell.
You see this “Afrobeat to the world” fight? We must fight it.
Our “lawyer”, Naomi Campbell has called out on Grammy that “they” should have more than three categories for Afrobeats in the Grammy Award.
Congratulating Angelique Kidjo for carting away the Grammy Best World Music Award, the legendary British supermodel and actress followed up her message to the winner unloading “what is and what is not” on the Recording Academy.
To Burna boy, she gave a pat on the back, saying it is only due to lack of education (on the part of Grammy) that he hasn’t been honored with the accolade he truly deserves, calling the “African giant” a winner always.
Leading to a variety of reactions on Twitter was Noami, schooling Grammy on why they should add Afrobeat as a genre of music to their musical genre radar.
And guess what?
Our “lawyer”, Naomi Campbell gave the Grammy management an ultimatum to see to include Afrobeats Artist of the year, Song of the year, Album of the year and other subcategories the genre deserves, else .……..
Following this, the lovers of Afrobeats on twitter sends in their pleas, thoughts and opinions to Grammy for quick assessments and positive response pronto.
See comments here;
It goes without saying that the message of the British Modella has come to stay, but brooding over this.
with these arrays of assertions couched in comments, they, insinuatingly points to a question.
Do you think the “African Giant” was shortchanged?
Do you think, Burna boy should have been “Grammied”?
