SInger, Yemi Alade has taken to her social media to thank fans who are wishing her well after she won the Grammy Award courtesy of Angelique Kidjo’s album, Mother Nature which won the Best Global Music Album at this year’s Grammys.
Recall that Kidjo beat the likes of Wizkid and Femi and Made Kuti to win the prestigious award last night.
Yemi Alade sent a shout-out to Kidjo who acknowledged her and Burna Boy during her speech for their contributions to the album. Now, she is thanking fans for celebrating with her.
Congratulations to Yemi Alade!
Meanwhile Wizkid has failed to win in the two categories he was nominated for the 64th Grammy awards.
Recall that Wizkid was nominated alongside fellow Nigerians– Femi Kuti, Burna Boy and Tems for Best Global Music Performance at The 2022 Grammys. Also nominated in that same category was Beninese legend, Angelique Kidjo.
The Self acclaimed Starboy also has his ‘Made In Lagos’ album nominated for Best Global Music Album at The 2022 Grammys, alongside Femi Kuti and Made Kuti’s Legacy +, Angelique Kidjo’s Mother Nature and Rocky Dawumi’s Voice of Bunbon Volume.
Unfortunately, he lost the first which is the Best Global Music Performance to Arooj Aftab and the second, Best Global Music Album to Angelique Kidjo.
