I’ve gotten 20 nominations, zero Grammy wins – Snoop Dogg laments.

Legendary American rapper, Calvin Cordozar Broadus aka Snoop Dogg has lamented that he has about 20 Grammy nominations with 0 win.

He took to his Instagram page to complain.

This comes few days after the Recording Academy concluded the 65th Grammy Awards Ceremony.

Snoopy Dogg shared a screenshot of his colleagues in the rap industry who have been nominated several times for Grammy awards and won their categories.

The list of rappers includes Jay Z and Kanye West with 24 wins respectively, Kendrick Lamar with 17, Eminem with 15, and Pharell with 13 Grammy win.

He wrote: “Snoop dogg. 20 nominations. 0 wins.”


Blac Chyna’s Mom Calls Her 2023 Grammys Costume “Horrendous”.

Blac Chyna’s outrageous Grammys costume did not go down well with her brutally honest mom, Tokyo Toni, who slammed her daughter’s ensemble to TMZ on Monday.

In the blistering fashion takedown, Tokyo Toni – real name Shalana Jones-Hunter, 51 – gave her opinion on Chyna’s Black Swan getup.

The 34-year-old model-socialite showed up to the Grammys in a grand concoction of jet-black feathers that featured raven skull pendants around the thighs of her bodysuit.

Enshrined from behind by a voluminous turkey’s fan, China appeared to be lost in her avant-garde plumage.

Speaking to TMZ, Toni said: ‘I texted Chyna this morning and, uh, when I found out and I saw it, um, I said, “Chyna, what in the H is this? Who are you trying to not impress?” ‘

Blac Chyna’s mom wasn’t agonizing over telling her daughter the cold hard truth, as she told TMZ that the blunt criticism was ‘well-deserved.’

‘It may have been a little, um…mean, or whatever, but it was well-deserved,’ said Tokyo Toni, who didn’t receive a text back from her daughter.

‘No response,’ Toni told TMZ. ‘Maybe if I said, “Oh, your dress was beautiful,” maybe I woulda got a response.’

‘It was terrible,’ she proclaimed, driving home her point. ‘And I just wish that whole day could just rewind and bring her back and put a nice gold dress on her with some blonde hair. We’d been happenin’. It was horrible.’

Tokyo Toni kept blasting her daughter, and came up with some interesting comparisons in the process.

‘I think that outfit was…horrendous. It was…sickening. It was a…looks like a, uh…a worship ceremony. She looked like Black Adam’s wife fell outta the sky. Like…a fallen angel. It was disgusting.’

And Blac Chyna’s mom didn’t stop with her dress, as Tokyo Toni lit into the reality star’s inky eye makeup.

‘Her eyes…it don’t look like Blac Chyna. It just don’t look like her at all, and that dress…I coulda came and took it off her myself.’

After unleashing her tirade to TMZ, Tokyo Toni concluded with a few final thoughts – none of which were positive.

‘I believe she do deserve the trolling because it’s well-deserved. The Grammys should be…you should be dressed…very very elegant. Very, uh, pretty. Real wifey-like. You know?’

‘And you’re not getting an award, but you’re supposed to dress as if you are. And um…it was just terrible. I wouldn’t wish that dress on anybody in the world. Looks like the devil.’

Tokyo Toni might have gained a whole new fanbase in the Kardashians, since the family recently defeated Blac Chyna in court over the holidays, bringing an end to their five-year legal battle against her.

The mother-of-two was engaged to Rob Kardashian in 2016 until they ended their tumultuous relationship the following year.

Chyna shares a six-year-old daughter named Dream with Rob and a 10-year-old son named King Cairo with the rapper Tyga.

Chyna had alleged that the Kardashians had defamed her and pressured E! to cancel her reality series with Rob – Rob & Chyna – though a jury disagreed, giving the Kardashians a huge victory.

Chyna was seeking a reported $100 million from the Kardashians, but the jury ruled that they owed her no damages whatsoever.

But even though her mother didn’t love her Grammys look, Blac Chyna’s silver lining was that she got to enjoy an incredible show

One wrote: “[I turned on the television and] it was Madonna and I had to get up and stand closer to make sure it was her.”

Another wrote on Twitter: “What has happened to #madonna?? Is it just me or does she look like someone who looks like Madonna?”

Ariadne Quinn wrote: “Madonna doesn’t even look like Madonna anymore” while another added: “She hardly resembles the Madonna I fell in love with.”

Madonna hailed the “the rebels out there” while brandishing a whip as she introduced the performance. The star asked: “Are you ready for a little controversy?”

In other news, reality TV personality, Venita Akpofure has stated that women are genuinely the problems of their fellow women.

Taking to her Twitter page this morning, the mother of two revealed that she was previously chastised for berating a lady who came online to drag their exes while another man was praised for airing the same opinion.

Venita revealed that this would never make her stop speaking her truth and anyone who wanted to misunderstand her opinion and bash her for it was free to do so.

“I said something a month ago about “draggin” exes thru the mud. I was considered a man sympathizer. Another public figure came out and says something almost identical. Mind you he is male. The women applauding the statement are plenty. In conclusion. We women are our own problem truly. AND I, Venita Akpofure will never mince my words for any other person. If u sabi Oxford English then u go sabi. If not , it’s not really my problem. Misunderstand at the cost of ur own emotions and MB”, she tweeted

Grammys: Jay-Z Performs “GOD DID” With Lil Wayne, Dj Khaled, & More.

On Sunday night, Jay-Z took over the 2023 Grammy Awards with a performance of his collaboration with DJ Khaled, “GOD DID.” During the event, he was joined by John Legend, Lil Wayne, Fridayy, Khaled, and Rick Ross.

The song was performed outside of the Crypto.com stadium, adjacent to a set dinner table. “We performed an 8-minute song at the Grammys!” Khaled made a statement to the cameras.

“GOD DID” dropped back in August 2022 as the title track from Khaled’s thirteenth studio album. Jay-Z handles four minutes of the star-studded song’s runtime. The track peaked at 17 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

In addition to performing “GOD DID,” the group was also nominated for Song Of The Year, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song with the track. Despite this, “GOD DID” failed to win in any of the three categories. The nominations left Jay-Z in a tie with his wife, Beyoncé, for the most in Grammys history. The couple both have 88 nominations throughout their careers. Beyoncé, however, become the artist with the most wins on Sunday night, reaching 32 total Grammy awards.

“I’m trying not to be too emotional and I’m trying to just receive this night,” Beyoncé said during her acceptance speech for Best Dance/Electronic Album. “I want to thank god for protecting me. Thank you, god. I’d like to thank my uncle Johnny, who’s not here, but he’s here in spirit. I’d like to thank my parents. My father, my mother for loving me and pushing me. I’d like to thank my beautiful husband, my beautiful three chid, who are at home watching. I’d like to thank the queer community for your love and for inventing the genre. God bless you. Thank you so much to the Grammys.”

Check out Jay-Z’s performance with John Legend, Lil Wayne, Fridayy, DJ Khaled, as well as Rick Ross below. The group was just one of several noteworthy performances during the ceremony. LL Cool J also took the stage alongside over 30 other artists to celebrate the history of hip-hop.

Grammys Reunion Of Harry Styles And Lizzo – Definitely That Epic.

It was about damn time Lizzo and Harry Styles get together for some late-night chit-chat.

The amigos reunited on Feb. 5, 2023, at the 2023 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, less than a year after their epic Coachella performance in 2022. At the ceremony, which was hosted by Trevor Noah, cameras caught the couple sharing an embrace. Lizzo and Harry, who were sat next to each other inside the event, even took selfies together, confirming that relationship will always be as strong as hell.

It was just another golden touch to music’s biggest night, which included some friendly competition. After all, they were both nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the Year. In addition to their well-earned nods, they both performed at Crypto.com arena.

During the ceremony, Lizzo won the award for Record of the Year for “About Damn Time,” and Harry took home trophies for Best Pop Vocal Album and Album of the Year for Harry’s House.

Back in 2021, when Harry took home the Grammy for Best Pop Solo Performance and Lizzo, like the rest of us, couldn’t contain her excitement. As she captioned a backstage pic, “HARRY WON A GRAMMY !!!!”

A year later, they gifted fans one of the greatest gifts of all: A surprise performance. While headlining Coachella, the Harrys House superstar brought out Lizzo for an iconic performance of Gloria Gaynor’s 1978 song “I Will Survive.” They followed it up—dare we say, topped that—with One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”

“Last night was amazing,” Lizzo later wrote on Instagram. “@harrystyles is a treasure, gods gift to rock n roll.”

As if we couldn’t love them more, in July, Lizzo shared on TikTok that Harry sent her a bouquet of orange, pink and yellow flowers and a note to congratulate her on her single “About Damn Time” unseating his track “As It Was” for the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

“Bffs that slay together,” one fan wrote in the comments, “stay together.” Indeed

Iggy Azalea Shares New Photo Amid 2023 Grammy Awards.

On Sunday, at the 2023 Grammy Awards, Iggy Azalea posted a new photo of herself in a swimsuit on Instagram. The announcement comes only weeks after the singer collaborated with OnlyFans to release her Hotter Than Hell multimedia project. The page gives admirers access to the Australian artist’s images, videos, music, graphics, and poems.

Hotter Than Hell will continue on OnlyFans through December 2023, encompassing the release of Azalea’s upcoming fourth studio album. Azalea is set to release the untitled project in the summer of 2023. Subscriptions to Azalea’s OnlyFans (onlyfans.com/iggyazalea) cost $25 per month.

Azalea joining OnlyFans comes years after she previously criticized creators for using the platform. She’s since admitted that she had a skewed perspective of the website and has changed her mind. Azalea says OnlyFans allows her to avoid the “overwhelming and creatively limiting censorship” of other digital platforms.

“Admittedly, I never knew OnlyFans was a place where I could be creative, so I didn’t expect to be collaborating with them on my biggest project to date!” Azalea said in a statement provided to Variety. “Once I looked beyond the surface-level chatter about what it means to have an OnlyFans, I realized it was the perfect platform to launch a multimedia concept on. I feel excited about not having to worry about the overwhelming and creatively limiting censorship artists have to navigate when sharing work on other digital platforms. The project is bold and fun — so is this collaboration — I think it’s going to surprise a lot of people.”

While she wasn’t at the Grammy Awards, she’s received four nominations throughout her career. At the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, she was up for Best New Artist, Record of the Year, and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Fancy” and Best Rap Album for The New Classic. The Recording Academy has yet to nominate her again in the years since. But perhaps Hotter Than Hell will change that. Check out Iggy Azalea’s latest post on Instagram below

Chrisean Rock During Drunken Argument Asked Blueface If He Wants “New Pussy”

Blueface and Chrisean Rock appeared to be calling it quits on their relationship just a few months ago. At the time, the Baltimore native stated she was expecting a kid, and her boyfriend quickly denied paternity. They have, nevertheless, been collaborating closely since then. According to supporters, their romantic relationship is still going strong.

The couple has previously never been shy about sharing their drama with the internet. This is what ultimately led them to start their Crazy In Love reality show. The Zeus Network’s original project aired its entire first season over the past few weeks. Now, they’re keeping the masses entertained with bonus episodes that see more dramatic fights, among other things.

This weekend, previews began circulating that show plenty of chaos unfolding between Rock and Blueface. In one clip, the Baddies cast member assures the rapper that she’s “not gay,” and has no interest in kissing other women while he watches. Despite his incessant pleas, his girlfriend remains against the idea of sharing another girl with him in the bedroom.

On Sunday (February 5), @theneighborhoodtalk uploaded yet another sneak peek at the new episode. In this one, Chrisean sits drunkenly in the car with a few men and proceeds to ask the “Thotiana” hitmaker if he’s interested in sleeping with other people. “So I’m drunk to you? I’m a drunk bitch to you?” she presses him.

After aggressively hitting his bottle of Hennessy with her own, she yells, “Hello?! I’m trying to talk to you! What you want, some new pssy? It’s just gon’ make you miss my pssy. F*ck ’em, they ain’t better than mine.” In the background, the other men sitting in the vehicle begin to laugh at the ongoing ramblings.

The reality TV antics have been nothing short of entertaining, but as of late, Rock’s day-to-day also has her followers interested. Even with her recent pregnancy announcement, the 22-year-old has still been out on the town, turning up at events like Yung Miami’s star-studded birthday party this past weekend.

For that, she wore a matching two-piece set, putting her barely-there baby bump on display for the world to see

Drake Wins Grammy Award Despite Shunning 2023 Ceremony.

Drake ended the 2023 Grammy Awards on Sunday night with a win despite not submitting any songs. Future’s “Wait For U,” which also features Tems, received the prize for Best Melodic Rap Performance. Future defeated Kendrick Lamar’s “Die Hard,” DJ Khaled’s “Beautiful,” Jack Harlow’s “First Class,” and Latto’s “Big Energy (Live)” to win.

“Wait For U” was released on Future’s ninth studio album, I Never Liked You, back in April 2022. The hit song debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Despite no submissions, Drake released plenty of music that could’ve qualified for the Grammys. He dropped Honestly, Nevermind as well as Her Loss in 2022.

As for Drake’s issue with the Recording Academy, he previously withdrew his music from the 64th Annual Grammy Awards. He was already up for Best Rap Album (Certified Lover Boy) and Best Rap Performance (“Way 2 Sexy”). Going back further, Drake once voiced his frustration with the Recording Academy in a social media post from November 2020. He was unhappy that The Weeknd‘s After Hours album wasn’t up for any awards that year.

“I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards and just accept that what once was the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artist that exists now and the ones that come after,” he wrote on Instagram at the time.

He continued: “It’s like a relative you keep expecting to fix up but they just won’t change their ways. The other day I said @theweeknd was a lock for either album or song of the year along with countless other reasonable assumptions and it just never goes that way. This is a great time for somebody to start something new that we can build up over time and pass on to the generations to come.” Revisit Future’s “Wait For U” music video below featuring Drake and Tems

Quavo Honors Takeoff At Grammys “Without You” Performance.

Takeoff was present at the Grammys this year. The Recording Academy invited Quavo to perform an emotional rendition of his song “Without You” during the In Memoriam section. The song was released as a homage to Takeoff, who died in early November.

The Maverick City Music choir backed Quavo during his stunning performance at the award show while images of Takeoff and Quavo appeared on the screen. Additionally, Take’s chain, which Quavo wore to the award show, dangled from the mic stand before Qua’ held it in the air. Immediately, fans praised Quavo for his performance at the Grammys. Some said that they got emotional while watching it.

It marks Quavo’s first performance since Takeoff’s death in November. However, he popped out on a few occasions recently, such as Diddy’s NYE party. Shortly after, he stormed the field at the Georgia Bulldogs championship game to celebrate their triumphant win.

After the funeral of Takeoff, Quavo penned a heartfelt message on Instagram. As he and Take recently embarked on a new chapter in their careers as a duo, Quavo explained how they were always by each other’s side since they were kids. He echoed a similar sentiment at Take’s funeral in Atlanta.

“This whole time I’ve been trying to figure out what you really are to me because nephew wasn’t it. We hated the word ‘nephew’ or when they said ‘Unc and Phew’ because we always knew we were way closer than that and it made me feel old too,” Quavo wrote on IG. “Now I finally get it… you are OUR angel watching me and watching us this whole time in living form, making sure EVERYONE FELT UR LOVE AND HUGS while u here and u made our dreams come true.”

Sheryl Crow, Mick Fleetwood, and Bonnie Raitt also took the stage and honored those that passed away. Musgraves celebrated Loretta Lynn with a cover of “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” Elsewhere during the segment, Crow, Fleetwood, and Raitt performed “Songbird” as a tribute to Christine McVie.

Along with Takeoff, the In Memoriam segment paid tribute to several artists that tragically died in 2022. Coolio, Tame One, DJ Kay Slay, and Stephen “tWitch” Boss were among those included. However, the Grammys appeared to face backlash for leaving out a few names, specifically, members of the hip-hop community. The Grammy did not appear to include PnB Rock, Lil Keed, and Gangsta Boo in the segment

Reacting to this, Tems who has songs with Wizkid, Beyonce, Drake, Beyoncé among others in the tweet said she is undoubtedly among the Goat in the music industry.

Tems declared it was easy for a goat to attract another goat as they easily recognize one another unlike sheep, that are always blind when it comes to recognizing themselves.

“How you know you tha is when you attract the all the ’s. It don’t take too long for a GOAT to recognise another GOAT. But the sheep, they always blind af.” She wrote.

Grammy: Billie Eilish Rocked Out During Sunday Night’s Live Broadcast.


After a string of awards show performances that have been more on the sombre and subdued side, Billie Eilish was finally able to cut loose at this year’s Grammys.

In fact, the chart-topping singer quite literally turned the stage upside down during Sunday night’s live show.

Taking to the stage in Las Vegas, Billie was one of the night’s stand-outs thanks to her live rendition of the title track from her number one album Happier Than Ever.

She began the performance by singing Happier Than Ever’s slow opening section in close-up, while sporting a top paying tribute to Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, who died last month at the age of 50.

As the track progressed, viewers saw that she was singing inside of an upside-down living room, in a nod to the song’s music video.

After making it onto the roof of the makeshift house, Billie then rocked out with her brother Finneas, while they were both pelted with rain.

Billie went into this year’s Grammys with seven nominations to her name, though she ended up going home empty-handed.

We can’t imagine that was something she’s too upset about, though. At the past two Grammys, Billie has scooped an impressive seven awards, and last week celebrated a victory at the Oscars thanks to her contribution to the No Time To Die soundtrack.

Jazz and R&B singer Jon Batiste was the big winner at the 2022 Grammys with five wins, while Olivia Rodrigo also took home three awards, including Best New Artist.


Dua Lipa Shows Off Her New Hairstyle On The Grammys Red Carpet | Photos.


Arriving at the Grammys 2022 as a presenter, Dua Lipa commanded attention with a platinum hair transformation that left only a set of roots hinting at her brunette lengths.

Winking at cameras hovering over her in a vintage black Versace gown dripping in gold-coined chains (the autumn/winter 1992 ready-to-wear collection piece similar to a style which Donatella Versace once wore herself), Lipa’s platinum lengths read as an ode to the Italian fashion designer.

LAS VEGAS NEVADA APRIL 03 Dua Lipa attends the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 03 2022 in…

Considered Versace’s Gen-Z muse, the pop star has starred in the house’s ad campaigns and even walked its spring runway. It makes sense then, that Lipa, who won Best Pop Vocal Album for “Future Nostalgia” last year, would wear the label for the music industry’s most photographed catwalk-slash-red-carpet.

A few weeks ago, Lipa was seen on screen alongside Megan Thee Stallion in the music video for “Sweetest Pie” (featuring plenty of chestnut-coloured hair tosses). And just last night, she was traipsing through Las Vegas, with even more brunette hair tosses, which is to say that hairstylist Chris Appleton (the man behind J Lo’s iconic Super Bowl hair) delivered Lipa’s waist-grazing platinum look in less than 24 hours. The pair is keeping tight-lipped about the official transformation, meaning we can’t say for sure whether it’s a wig or a permanent change, but does it matter, as long as everyone is talking?

The Best Dressed Stars at the 2022


No Grammy Award for 2021.


The Grammys had already planned on a limited show for 2021, forgoing an audience completely and only allowing presenters and performers on-site during the show.

The 2021 edition of the Grammys has been postponed due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19, according Rolling Stone.

It was originally scheduled for January 31.

Organizers have not confirmed a new date, but it is believed they are aiming to hold the event sometime in March.


Nominated artists wouldn’t have been allowed on-site either, likely leading to a situation similar to the 2020 Emmys where nominees appeared and accepted awards remotely.

The 2021 Grammy nominations were led by Beyoncé who picked up nine nominations, while Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift and Roddy Ricch followed behind with six nods each.



Kidjo hangs out with Burna boy days after Grammy event ..

Angelique Kidjo, a Beninese singer, has met with Burna Boy, Nigeria’s Afrofusion singer, and Bose Ogulu, his mum, days after winning the Grammys.

The 59-year-old actress and activist, who is known for her diverse musical influences, appeared to have paid a visit to the home of the ‘African Giant’ singer.

The duo took to their social media platforms on Friday to share pictures they took brimming with smiles.

In one of the videos on social media platforms, the talented songster can be seen discussing with Burna Boy and his mum, while the duo listened attentively.

Kidjo had snagged the Recording Academy’s 2020 ‘Best World Music Album’ award in the same award category in which Burna Boy was nominated for his ‘African Giant’ project.

While receiving her gramophone statuette on Sunday, Kidjo had dedicated her win to Burna Boy, describing him as being among those changing the narrative of music-making in the continent.

“He’s among those artistes from Africa that are changing the way that our continent is perceived and the way that Africa’s has been the bedrock of every music,” the four-time Grammy winner had said.

Burna had, following the loss, reassured his fans around the globe of his commitment to music-making, charging the world to get ready for his comeback.

Reacting to the ‘Ye’ crooner’s loss, Nigerians had flared while Naomi Campbell, an English actress, had criticized the Grammy organisers for failing to recognize Afrobeats as an award category.

“Afrobeats is a musical genre played on mainstream and primetime radio not only across the continent of Africa but across the world,” Campbell wrote in an open letter to the Academy.

“Recently, the genre was put in your ‘World Music’ category at the 2020 Grammys. This misrepresentation diminishes an entire genre in which such a high standard of talent has emerged.

“Did the world get to vote for this award? What will this neglectful categorization of music mean to individual cultures who contribute their blood, sweat, tears, and every level of their creativity?”

Grammy winner, Kidjo meets Asa, spoke fluent Yoruba (Video) ..

Grammy winner Angelique Kidjo is currently in Lagos, Nigeria, and she visited Smooth FM this morning for an interview.

While saying hello to the staff at the studio, Angelique spoke fluent Yoruba.

Nigerian singer Asa also visited the studio and both women were happy to see each other.

Angelique is seen drawing Asa in for a long hug before complimenting her footwear. They also spoke Yoruba to each other.

Angelique Kidjo, who will be performing in Lagos, Nigeria, said it will be her first time performing in the state.

“This is my first time in Lagos… My first time playing in Lagos. The last time I was here was in ’93. I left here at 13 years old.”

She added that her father was “too afraid” of her mum to bring her here because he feared if she comes here, she won’t want to go back to resume school.


You were not awarded because you lack education – Model writes to Burna boy ..

Popular model, Naomi Campbell has written an open letter to the organizers of Grammy Awards after Burna Boy lost to Angelique Kidjo at the 2020 edition of the awards.

Naomi Campbell who praised Angelique for spreading light and opening minds through her music, stated that Burna Boy has not been given the accolades he truly deserves due to lack of education.

The supermodel averred that categorization of afrobeats in the ‘World Music’ category of the 2020 Grammys, diminished an entire genre in which such a high standard of talent has emerged.

Naomi who queried the recording academy on the voting pattern of the category, urged them to use the next 363 days to reassess and reflect on their perspective of ‘World Music.’

She wrote;

First, I want to say deepest congratulations to @angeliquekidjo for her award on Sunday, and thank you to you for spreading light and opening minds through your music… •

And to our AFRICAN GIANT, @burnaboygram… it is only due to lack of education that you have not been honored with the accolades you so truly deserve. You are always a winner in our hearts. ALWAYS. •

And to The @RecordingAcademy,
There is something that brings joy, strength and happiness to myself, and to so many people that hear it, and it is called Afrobeats. Afrobeats is a musical genre played on mainstream and primetime radio not only across the continent of Africa, but across the world… •

Recently, the genre was categorized into your ‘World Music’ category at the 2020 Grammys. This misrepresentation diminishes an entire genre in which such a high standard of talent has emerged; a genre that has been a force of hope and positivity for many, and a vehicle for artistry on the continent of Africa. •

Please take the next 363 days to reassess and reflect on your perspective of ‘World Music.’ Did the world get to vote for this award, or was it only the people in the United States a part of The Recording Academy? What will this neglectful categorization of music mean to individual cultures? Cultures who contribute their blood, sweat and tears, and every level of their creativity and work ethic into making music for YOU and for all of us. •

Please get up to speed on the state of all popular music today, and include Afrobeats Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year and all the subcategories that this genre so deserves – just as any other respected and recognized musical genre. •

This is bigger than you, so open your eyes, ears and minds and treat us right and with the respect we deserve.

2020 Grammy: I never hated Burna boy – AKA ..

Popular South African Rapper, AKA has reacted to the Grammy Award loss of Afrobeats singer Burna Boy.

The 62nd Grammy Awards which held last night in Los Angeles, California, saw Burna Boy lose to fellow African and legendary singer, Angelique Kidjo, with her album Ceila.

As soon as the news broke, trolls stormed AKA’s Twitter page to hear what he will say about the loss Burna Boy suffered.

Recall that Burna Boy and AKA went at each other over the xenophobic attacks inflicted on Nigerians by South Africans in their country.

With the Grammies over and Burna Boy going home, many expect AKA to express excitement.

However, he changed that narrative when he tweeted thus ;

“I never hated Burna Boy. All I did was stand up for my country. I think it’s time to move past this narrative. It’s tired. Like I said, even a nomination is a huge achievement”.

“What you should have done is focus on the positive instead of thinking about me and my country. In any case, Burna is still a champion. We still consider him a winner”.
