Prince Abidogun against Ayo Animasahun’s who said Nigerians can`t Win The Grammy Award
Read what Prince Abidogun (@sheydboss) wrote below
Nigeria Acts can not win the Grammys, it is not for us” — HipTV CEO, Ayo Animashaun
Ohhh let me just say I don’t agree at all and I wont say he said that to boost his award (Hell No, we all know The Headies Award is the biggest Award in Nigeria).
He’s kind of right if he had said He doesn’t see any Nigeria artiste winning any Grammy Award in the Next 15-20 years. Yes or even more.
Its not a curse or any act of ridiculing Nigeria artiste. Its just the main truth.
Let’s go deep into it, Do we know the criteria in which songs are nominated 1qa the Grammy ? No !!. We just drop song and we wait for the Grammy Organizers to come pick and nominate it. Lol
Like the Headies award have the criteria they use in nominating people so does Other awards too have theirs.
So back to what Mr Animashaun said, its a NO, Nigeria music has gone beyond how he used to see it, American artistes are now featuring us.
We now produce artistes that does global hits, our artistes are now getting recognition in Other non Africa countries, Davido , Wizkid & Olamide and a lot of others are good examples, Wizkid was invited to Cochella , Davido won The best worldwide act at the MTV Ema , Wizkid beating the likes of Jay Z , Cardi B , Dj Khaled , Drake and others to win Mobo Award best international act.
So what made him think if Nigerians got nominated they won’t win ?.
And lastly, we Nigerians are overrating The Grammy Award.
If we all can support our Awards, the Americans too Will be Hoping they get nominated in our awards too.
And Nigeria Award Organizers should Tush Up their awards..
(We all hoping Headies Award won’t fuck up tonight !!!)
