Eleniyan!

But I still envy that Gilbert Bani (A-Q) record, imagine going home with 'Best Rap Album' with no single released to promote the said album.

By the way, rest in peace to Victor Chujor-Idowu (Beats By Jayy)

There are level to this thing and to Portable, the buzz around his single with Poco Lee and Olamide and notably his grass to grace story is inspiring.

It look like Iyana Ipaja Frank Sinatra and Uromi Jon Bellion are finally getting the recognition they deserved. Brymo and Drille are just too good.

Why are they hosting it outside the country? Has the Grammys ever been held outside of the US?

Cos to the best of my knowledge it is a local event unlike the likes of MOBO et al that are international and can be held anywhere. Perhaps our artists have outgrown their roots and the organisers yearn their participation?
