Popular social media critic, VeryDarkMan has revealed why no Nigerian Afrobeat singers won any categories of the 2024 Grammy Awards held on Sunday, February 4 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
New Telegraph had earlier reported that five Nigerian artists were nominated for the 2024 Grammy Awards which include Burna Boy, Davido, Asake, Olamide, and Ayra Starr.
However, none of them took home the award as South African singer, Tyle took the 66th Grammy Awards category for the maiden edition for African singers.
Reacting to the loss, VeryDarkMan criticized the Grammys, claiming they are attempting to prevent Afrobeat from obtaining complete control over them.
Shakti’s album, “This Moment” which won the Best Global Music Album doesn’t have up to 1 million total views on YouTube.
He also claimed that he had no idea who Tyla was up until Sunday and her song, “Water” was hyped by Ayra Starr, who he thought sang the song.
VeryDarkMan claims that in an effort to make the awards ceremony more exciting, numerous nominations were extended to Nigerian performers.
