No Nigerian won Grammys tyla beat afrobeats giants

The 66th Grammy Award saw a record number of Nigerians nominated for different categories including the inaugural Best African Music Performance category with 5 Nigerian artists taking four out of five spots, however in a surprising turn of events no Nigerian won any of the awards nominated.

During the nominations Nigeria saw a record of 10 nominations but has failed to win any of those categories.

The best Global Music Album category was won by Shakti for his work ‘This Moment’ while the best Global Music Performance category was won by Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer and Zakir for their song ‘Pashto’.

Tyla beat the likes of Davido, Burna Boy, Asake Olamide and Ayra Starr to win the coveted new Best African Music Performance.
