Well said but I didn't necessarily agree with you in all music is any sound that's pleasant to our ear

A well deserved win to Kidjo.
The content of her songs are out of this world. She is a mix of Maya Angelou and Miriam Makeba.

Music lovers and genuine content critics like myself would have given up on the credibility and essence of the Grammy Awards if another undeserving artiste had won this.

Sentiments aside, Nigeria is yet to replicate another Fela Kuti in the global music sphere.

Fela is the only Nigerian deserving of a Grammy.
Because music is not about dancesteps or groupie trends but about a movement, a message, reawakening a consciousness and yet the melody from real musical instruments.
This is a reality lost on today's Nigerian artistes aside from Asá who still lacks in consistency.

As an African act, till your music can be accepted by Pastors, Imams, Youths, elders, global leaders, United Nations and illiterates, then you stand a chance of being an African Album or winning a foreign award in Music.

Nigeria and Nigerians must understand that club bangers do not translate to foreign awards in global music.

There was no way Angelique Kidjo won’t have won. It’s like Michael Jackson losing to Ciara

Even Burnaboy would feel flattered to be nominated with her in the same category.

Fela here Fela there

What did Fela sing that we don't know?

I have never heard Fela song before,

All I know about Fela is... He's a weed smoker


You know nothing

Ehn ehn have u ever listened to lady Gaga’s music?! You know she arranges and writes her albums right? She doesn’t sample beats and lyrics from older musicians. You know she plays the piano during her live performances. Have u ever heard her VOICE??!!!!!!!

Please don’t bring lady Gaga into this convo, she has more talent in her fingernails than burnas whole career! I’m not joking!!!!!Dt is a f**king musician in every sense of the word!!!!

Don't mind these Nigerian kids... Imagine trying to drag Lady Gaga of all people...

Let them listen to her duet with Bradley Cooper: "Shallow"!!!... That's the definition of lyrical depth and vocal dexterity!!!

Congratulations ma! Na person wey get content be that.

you are very correct many of them don't even know Kidjo or heard any of her songs before that's why they can compare her to Burna, she's years ahead of Burna boy

Greatness begets greatness

I remember far back in 2013 when Angelique kidjo featured Asa in her melodious album 'Eva' which celebrated the pride, strength, and smile that masks everyday troubles faced by African women.

The album had a wide array of African languages, Fon, Yoruba, Goun, Mina etc


Asa also is doing greatly in her own way and she still very much portrays the Yoruba culture to France and the world. Her recent Album 'Lucid' has a good blend of fine sounds that carries messages.
'Happy People' which celebrates the resilient nature of Nigerian women irrespective of odds is one of my favorite.


Congratulations to both Angelique and Burna boy, they both are African giants.



I actually came to this thread for someone to mention ASA ,thanks for this one , in due time ASA is going places .
such proficiency and dedication to her culture and music styles I honestly thought we would never get a female brymo but ASA just took the mantle as soon as she came on board , she is in a place where people actually can appreciate her kind of music it sucks that we do not in sane climate Many of our artistes won't even think of a record deal with the crap they throw out in the studio .

He should go and listen to 'edge of glory'. Imagine a popsong dt sounds like a lovesong but was actually written about being wt a loved one at their deathbed. She is so deep. Dt shallow album after sweeping Grammy last year, still won another award yesterday o.

We are talking about an artiste dt almost all her songs gives u goose pimples. Even a random dance song like 'bad romance' get lyrical depth and vocal dexterity. Lets not even talk live performance. Dt guy na ode.

He just has to put in more effort, next year, next 2 years, next 3 years, anything can happen, the sky is the starting point

what are the content of his lyrics, he is like a gangsta, his videos are full.of half naked girls, cigarette and alcohol. there are lots of things that are considered b4 u can win a Grammy. he was nominated because of the high sale of his album.

for me o, Asa would have made a better nominee

**Seal(Henry Olusegun Adeola Samuel) is a Nigerian. He won 3 Grammy Awards in 1996 and additional 1 in 2011, making 4 Grammy awards
**Sade Adu,Sikiru Adepoju,Olalekan Babalola,Hakeem Seriki,Kevin Olusola & Cynthia Erivo too has won grammy award
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seal_(musician)#Awards_and_nominations

https://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2020/01/26/7-nigerians-who-have-won-the-grammy-awards/

How is so difficult for you to understand when I say "Nigerian" I mean a Nigerian based in Nigeria and not a Nigerian who is based abroad and have spent all their lives there...Seal is based abroad and make his music there, Burna boy lives in Nigeria and makes his music here.

I repeat no Nigerian based in Nigeria that makes their music here has ever won the Grammy awards.

His style is unique to him. His undoing I'll say is in the contents of his songs

Both will not make his songs evergreen unlike Asa's, Kidjo, Hugh Masekela, Chaka Chaka, Mariam Makeba, Style Plus or even Tubaba.

I know Nigerian music videos are all about naked girls these days, not only 9ja vids ohh, world over, it's now display of nudity, haven't been a tv person for the past couple of years now but I really don't think I've seen any of burna's video so I can't say but somehow that his last album had some couple of good songs

Asa; yes
But she no really get our time, she's on her level

Sentiments aside, fela was a musical guru ohh, heard only a few of kidjo's stuffs

I have to listen to more Angelique kidjo songs to affirm this your claim

There were collabos by fela and lagbaja, they were masterpieces

I usually sit and think how two guys were having a discussion while making music, masterpiece I say

Lagbaja should also be one of the greats
