Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, a former Presidential Candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), on Monday joined other Nigerians and Africans in celebrating Nigerian Afrobeat stars, Burna Boy and Wizkid for clinching 2021 Grammy Music Awards.
Moghalu, in a statement in Lagos, commended the artistes for their feats at the just concluded Grammy-award event on Saturday in the US.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Burna Boy, (Damini Ogulu) a 29-year-old Nigerian artiste, who was nominated for the second consecutive year, won the Best Global Music Album category with his `Twice As Tall’ album.
He defeated four other nominees.
Also, Wizkid (Ayodeji Balogun), a 30-year-old Nigerian artiste, won the Best Music Video for his song with Beyoncé; Brown Skin Girl, from Lion King: The Gift album.
The 63rd edition of the Grammy Awards, which was held in Los Angeles, USA, is often described as “music’s biggest night”.
Reacting, Moghalu said: “Burna Boy and Wizkid have made Nigeria and Africa proud.
“This honour shows the level of talents the youth in Nigeria have. I believe others will look at this and draw motivation to strive to be the best in every area of their endeavours.” (NAN)
