Nigerian Artistes Don't Deserve A Grammy - Hiptv CEO, Ayo Animashaun by EmagNig(m): 11:47am On May 05, 2018
HipTV CEO and the organizer of the popular Headies awards, Ayo Animashaun, has made a statement on the Grammy Awards and according to him, Nigerians artistes don't deserve to win the popular Award show in America.

In a recent interview with Tribune, when Ayo Animashaun was asked what is limiting Nigerian music from winning the Grammys, he said:

“I really don’t understand why Nigerians want to win the Grammys. Grammys are not for us, but for Americans. We should get that right. They put everybody in one world music category. We are not their focus. It is not for us. Yes, we can win awards, but they do not show us the way they run the award category during the show. .

I think we should make our own awards, our own Grammy and I would say it any day that the Grammy is not for us. They have built something big for themselves. Let them come and win awards in Nigeria or Africa.

We don’t celebrate our own things. It’s just a shame. I have been to the Grammys many times and I don’t see many African artistes. They don’t particularly care because they recognise, mainly, their industry. They don’t know you exist. .

You go there taking pictures with them and when you are taking pictures with them, the guy is already looking somewhere else. See all the artistes that paid for international collaboration. What happened? .

They collect your money and they don’t want to come back. They don’t want to collaborate with you. And you know what? You will make so much money here if you really work hard and you will be known in the whole of Africa. .

Build your own. If I tell a sponsor now that we should take five artistes to the Grammy awards, they would be ready to do that but when it comes to Headies, we will be begging for sponsorship. .

Grammy is not our thing. Let’s do our thing. Let’s make it big and fantastatic. Why do you want to win Grammy. There is no World Cup for music.”

Neither do the folks who buy your Headies award deserve it.

The Grammy isn't just for the Americans. You're wrong Ayo; it is for all deserving good musicians irrespective of clime or genre.

Nigerian artistes deserve the Grammy and even more if they merit it. Sadly, such folks don't even get nominated on your fake Headies.

I agree!
The only artist that can or should get a grammy in Nigeria is (Femi) The Kuti's. Fela should get one given to his family for his achievements. He is the Quincy Jones or Beethoven of Naija.

ALL THESE THEM WIZKID AND OTHERS ARE SMELLING WATERS. APART FROM THE KUTI, TUFACE WAS THE CLOSEST TO ANY GRAMMY BUT TRUTH BE TOLD EVEN TUFACE WASN'T GOOD ENOUGH. NA HYPE AND TITLE OF A STOLEN SONG CARRY AM REACH THAT LEVEL.
GIVE IT UP FOR THE KUTI ABEG. ORIGINAL NO DAY WASH. THESE GUYS ARE GENUISES. THEY PLAY DIFFERENT INSTRUMENTS, ARRANGE THEIR MUSIC, WRITE THEIR OWN MATERIALS AND STILL GOT THE VOCALS TO DELIVER. ORIGINALITY IS A GIFT THAT CAN ALWAYS BE POLISHED.

WHEN YOU LISTEN TO PEOPLE LIKE ANGELIQUE KIDJO AND WATCH HER PERFORM, YOU GO UNDERSTAND. WE NO GET ARTIST.

THE REASON WHY PSQUARE DEM BLOW LIKE THIS THEM GET TALENT TO DANCE. AND THEIR PRODUCERS GET COMMERCIAL QUALITY.

I APPRECIATE ALL NIGERIAN ARTISTS OH, BUT I NO GO SUPPORT MEDIOCRITY BECAUSE THE NEXT GENERATION NO GO GET SENSE. WHAT FELA GAVE US, WIZKID IS STILL TAPPING FROM FELA. DAVIDO IS STILL TAPING. THEY CANNOT TAP FROM THEMSELVES BECAUSE NOTHING DAY THERE. YOU SEE?

GUYS ABEG MAKE UNA SUPPORT THE KUTIs. THEY ARE THE LAST OF THEIR KIND FOR 9JA OH.

He didn't say they don't deserve it, he said it isn't meant for them, why misquote him to sensationalize the headline? Wizkid, Timaya, and a few others have been nominated in the past so them no born am well make e talk say Nigerian artists no deserve am.
By the way, the dude runs an award show that he likes to brand as the Nigerian Grammys so what do you really expect him to say

I don't think nigerian artists deserve a Grammy but it's for a different reason though. My reason being that their lyrics are utilmately garbage. Most with nice lyrics have bad songs and most with bad lyrics have good songs. Infact it seems like nigeria is a big market for garbage lyrics.

It's also worthy of note that there are people in the US whose lyrics are inferior and even though they are big stars they haven't won any Grammy because of that an example is rick ross and no star in nigeria has a single song with lyrics that touches any of rick ross' song. This shows you how inferior our music has come to be.

They only way a nigerian would deserve a Grammy award is if they go back to the era of Fela, Osadebe and other legendary artists with reasonable song whose art form are almost completely dead in nigeria.

Well said.....


Appreciate your own, appreciate what you've got. All we need is a better organisation, presentation and lack of sentiments.

On the other hand, African and Nigerian artistes need to improve on their music qualities. It is not just about flaunting nudes, money and drugs as music video

It's a mental fixation the blacks has to deal with. Always wanting to determine their way of life/progress by European and American standards; what you'll never see the Asians do. It's a pity.

The Grammies is truly not for us, Africans. They arranged it into categories beforehand, and the categories are hardly our thing. Simply put, it's not a level playing ground. It doesn't overrule the fact that we can still win it though. But truly, there is no music World Cup.
