The Grammy Awards ceremony on Sunday, February 5, was a historic moment for Nigerian music as Tems became the first female artist from the country to win a Grammy. She won in the Best Melodic Rap Performance category for her song “WAIT FOR U.”
This achievement is a testament to Tems’ talent and hard work and marks a significant milestone for female artists in Nigeria.
While Tems’ win was celebrated by many, Burna Boy’s ‘Last Last’ lost in the Best Global Song Performance category to ‘Bayethe’ by Wouter Kellerman, Zakes Bantwini & Nomcebo Zikod.
Despite this loss, Burna Boy’s status as a leading artist in the African music scene remains unchanged, and his fans continue to support his music.
Similarly, Davido and Wizkid trended on social media after missing out. Both artists have a large following across the word. However, their missing does not diminish their status as top musicians in the country and the African continent.
The Grammy Awards ceremony once again highlighted the growing influence of African music on a global scale. The music industry in Africa is rapidly evolving and artists from the continent are making their mark on the international stage.
Tems’ win will inspire more young women to pursue their dreams in the music industry, and fans can expect to see more African artists make their presence felt in the coming years.
In conclusion, Tems’ win at the Grammy Awards ceremony is a significant moment for Nigerian music and a testament to the talent and hard work of female artists in the country.
The music industry in Africa continues to evolve and grow, and fans can look forward to more exciting developments in the future.
