The president commends these exceptional artists for their fidelity to the art, audacity, and discipline in the pursuit of excellence.
“Our superstars nominated for the Grammy Awards are all winners. I am proud of their exploits.
“They represent that Nigerian ideal; the courage to strive and succeed against all odds and the hope to stay true to purpose. I congratulate and thank them for being exemplary envoys of Nigeria,” the president says.
