Popular activist, VeryDarkMan has examined the grounds for the Grammy Awards’ snubbing of every nominated Nigerian artists.
Recall that five Nigerian artists were nominated for Grammy Awards in 2024: Burna Boy, Davido, Asake, Olamide, and Ayra Starr. However, none of them took home the award.
In reaction, VeryDarkMan criticized the Grammys, claiming that they are attempting to prevent Afrobeat from obtaining complete control over them.
Buttressing his points, VeryDarkMan claimed that the Shakti’s album, “This Moment” that 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 yesterday 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.
