None of the Nigerian artistes nominated for the 66th Grammy Awards emerged as winners at the ceremony held at the Peacock Theatre in Los Angeles, United States. David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, Damini Ogulu, also known as Burna Boy, Ahmed Ololade (Asake), Olamide Adedeji (Baddo), and Oyinkansola Aderibigbe (Ayra Starr) were among the five artists of Nigerian descent who lost in their respective categories.
The nominations for the 2024 Grammy Awards were announced in November 2023, creating excitement and anticipation among Nigerian music fans. However, despite their combined 10 nominations, none of the artists managed to secure an award.
The absence of Nigerian artists from the winners’ list highlights the incredibly competitive nature of the Grammy Awards and the tough competition they faced in their respective categories. It serves as a reminder of the immense talent and diversity present in the global music industry.
The Grammy Awards, considered one of the most prestigious music awards globally, recognizes outstanding achievements in the field and honors artists from various genres. The Peacock Theatre in Los Angeles hosted the 66th edition of the ceremony, which saw artists from around the world vying for recognition and accolades.
Despite the disappointment for Nigerian artists, the 66th Grammy Awards witnessed major wins for other renowned musicians including Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Boygenius, SZA, and Billie Eilish. The night was filled with celebration and recognition of exceptional talent.
The Nigerian artists who had received nominations, such as Davido, Burna Boy, Asake, Baddo, and Ayra Starr, are highly respected and acclaimed within the music industry. Their nominations alone were a testament to their outstanding contributions and achievements over the past year.
Although this year’s Grammy Awards may not have brought success for Nigerian artists, their presence and recognition at such a prestigious event demonstrate the increasing global influence and impact of Nigerian music. They continue to inspire and captivate audiences worldwide.
