By Omeiza Ajayi, ABUJA
The ruling All Progressives Congress APC has described Nigeria’s Afrobeat sensations, Damini Ogulu (Burna Boy) and Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun (Wizkid) as inspiration to the youth, following the awards they won at the 63rd Grammys held in Los Angeles, United States of America USA.
The party in a statement by the National Secretary of its Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee CECPC, Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe noted that Burna Boy won the Best Global Music Album category with his Twice As Tall album while Wizkid won the Best Music Video for his song with Beyoncé; Brown Skin Girl.
“This is unarguably Nigeria’s biggest moment on the world’s music stage and an affirmation of our artistes and the vibrant afrobeat genre as an international musical force.
“This indeed crowns efforts of Nigerian superstars such as Fela Ransome-Kuti who were the main progenitors of afrobeat/Afropop that have become mainstream music all over the world.
As a party, we are immensely proud that our musical stars are leading the pack of young Africans who are redefining the global music space.
