Recently, a list of African artists who have received the coveted Grammy Award since the 1960s was revealed by organisers ahead of the 66th Grammy Awards, slated to take place on February 4.
The list, which features prominent accomplishments in global music recognition, notably excluded Wizkid and Tems.
This was somewhat surprising to their fans considering that the two Nigerian stars were once featured in songs that bagged prestigious recognition.
The late South African singer Miriam Makeba was the first on the list as the first African to win a Grammy. The Nigerian/British pop sensation Sade also made it to the list.
Below is the list released by the organisers.
Burna Boy Read to perform at the 66th Grammys
In a new development, Nigerian Afro-fusion superstar Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, will join other top artists to perform at the 66th Grammys on February 4. The multi-talented artist would be the first African artist to grace the enigmatic stage of the Grammys with his dazzling rendition.
Other artists, like American singer Luke Combs and hip-hop star Travis Scott, will also be performing, joining Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, and Olivia Rodrigo, who were previously announced.
