Angelique Kidjo has given shout outs to
Nigerian music icons; Yemii Alade, Burna Boy and Mr Eazi, describing them as the "Future of African Music," as she receives her Grammy Award for Best Global Music Album for Mother Nature.
Impressively, after Angelique Kidjo made Dignity with Yemi Alade, she dedicated the award to Nigerians who lost their lives at the Lekki tollgate.
The song is the lead single for the Mother Nature and, today, it has won GRAMMYs. You all are just getting pained. She is a legend and she knows her onions, Sola reacting to some Nigerians who are, seemingly, bittered with the ways Wizkid and Burna Boys lost out at the Award.
Angelique kidjo has just won her 4th Grammy Awards. She had won the “Best Global Music Album” with the album “Mother Nature” which featured Mr Eazi, Burna Boy, Yemi Alade, Rexxie and Sprtymix, which is her fourth Grammy Awards, thus far.
Afam was jealous of Angelique Kidjo's achievements, stating that Brymo is one artist that can actually win Grammy easily if he is serious. He has that autochthonous African aesthetics Grammy and white people want to see. Angélique Kidjo knows this and has been milking it for years, more reason Yemi Alade is popular amongst ndị ọcha.
Samuel Otigba was proud of Nigerian musicians for their outstanding performance in the current musical year. He recalled that, so far, in 2022, Nigerian musicians including Davido-l has been sorted fir FIFA World Cup 2022 OST;
Yemi Alade winning Grammy while Wizkid got nominated twice Grammy and
Burna also got two Grammy nomination for the same year.
Maxi Olizaemeka was surprised at the ways other musicians in Nigeria looked away from Yemi Alade despite her success.
He regretted that Yemi Alade is the biggest female artiste in this country. Numbers & achievements are there for everyone to see, but tonight she got a certificate for being on Angélique Kidjo’s album. How many Naija artistes especially the ladies congratulated her? The industry hate on Yemi is real.
Setting more record on the Nigerian music industry and their challenges, Sam Cleave revealed that the stake of Nigeria in the music market is so tiny to think the relevance of any artiste and their music revolve around your patronage, that's why Ckay did not care about us and why Yemi Alade had never had us as targeted audience. Angelique Kidjo is an Icon, go and learn.
Adetomiwa, however, stated that Yemi Alade is the female version of Burna boy outside Nigeria, they don’t get the accolades from home country.
