Music enthusiasts and fans of Nigerian music star, Burna Boy, are at loggerhead over earlier comments by American supermodel, Naomi Campbell.
Campbell took to her Instagram and Twitter pages to congratulate Angelique Kidjo before coming at the Recording Academy, saying that they should have more than three categories for afrobeats at the Grammy Awards.
The actress declared that the categorization of afrobeat in the ‘World Music’ category of the 2020 Grammys, diminished an entire genre in which such a high standard of talent has emerged.
She queried the recording academy on the voting pattern of the category, urging them to use the next 363 days to reassess and reflect on their perspective of ‘World Music.’
Since delivering her position on the subject, however, Twitter NG has gone into overdrive.
While some claimed that she was on point with her stand on the matter, others differed on her opinion; while giving reasons why Afrobeats artistes may never win the award.
See reactions below:
Naomi Campbell has spoken well. The Grammy has a Latin category and a Reggae category. Why can't they have an Afrobeats category as well?

No one told Jamaica the music they do is Reggae or Dancehall. They came up with their names and identities. How do you expect the world to recognize you when you don't even know yourself?
