Waooo...

Only if My country Nigeria could learn to appreciate her talents probably its citizens would have appreciated hard and smart work rather than what we have now.

Grow up Nigeria, we await your manifestation!

Burna Boy should be ashamed of himself.
He couldn't clinch just one but a teenager has a deadweight of 5!
If he has any decency, he should know he owes all his fans an apology.

Billie didn't need to wear blings, have millions of Instagram followers or flaunt a celebrity partner.
She learnt from Ed Sheeran and simply focussed on creating better music than the world was already used to.
Remove at the bolded cos Billie have over 50M Instagram followers

Congrats to Kidjo she made Africa proud and to Burna for pushing his career further and globally. This is his first nomination and would go a long way to prove his worth and consistence to the global listeners. He should go back to the studio and do more jams, but to be honest winning Grammy no be child's play I just imagine Burna going beyond African Giants album means more serious work and fire blazing songs. Well congrats to all the winners and nominees y'all deserve some accolades.. cheers

You say no be child's play. 18 years no be child

This girl.... You cannot even estimate the size of her boobs or asss, never! Not even the slightest of cleavages shown, yet she sweeps awards like pure water. If you like use pant & bra waka for main road, if you are empty... You are empty.
That's a lesson to entertainers that think it's by unclothedness

When an artiste connects with a producer and they are both working with passion and not just for money, this is the result. It has happened over and over. Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones, Diddy and Notorious BIG and our own Don Jazzy and Dbanj

The millions of Instagram followers our Nigerian musicians command and the lavish lives they flaunt is the only reason most American artistes agree to stoop low to feature them and not their talent.
Beyonce will rather feature a Wizkid on her album than an Asá or a Lagbaja because they are also in showbiz for more publicity.

But if she were on a Music Award panel, she'd pick Asá over a Wizkid.
That's the sadly true reality.

Pop star Billie Eilish swept the board at the 2020 Grammys, winning five awards, including best new artist and song of the year.

The 18-year-old also won album of the year for her debut, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, which was recorded in her childhood home in LA.

She replaces Taylor Swift as the youngest person ever to win the award.

"I joke around a lot at these things, but I genuinely want to say I'm so grateful," said the singer.

Eilish triumphed in all of the Grammys "big four" marquee categories - song of the year, record of the year, album of the year and best new artist.

The nominees for album of the year were Bon Iver Lana Del Rey ("Norman F***ing Rockwell" Eilish ("When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go" Ariana Grande ("Thank U, Next H.E.R. ("I Used to Know Her Lil Nas X Lizzo ("Cuz I Love You" and Vampire Weekend Father of the Bride"

She is the first person to achieve the feat since Christopher Cross in 1981.

Her elder brother, Finneas O'Connell, also picked up producer of the year for his work on Eilish's album.

An 8 year old is actually the youngest, not her

I can't take this award too seriously, an award given out by an American musical academy, and she's American, they are just trying to sell out the American talent to the world.

All her songs are crap. If you doubt me, go on YouTube and watch her songs. On a good day them no born her well make she stand where burna stand when we talk of music. This proves one thing : Grammys is an American and British award. That is why there is a Latin Grammy.
