Media Personality Shades Burna Boy Over Grammy Loss

Nigerian media personality, Shade Ladipo, has lent her voice on Burna Boy losing the Grammy Award to legendary singer, Angelique Kidjo.

Although the loss came as a shock to Nigerians who rooted for the Afro-fusion star to cart home the prestigious award, many others felt that the Kidjo deserved the award as her album, Celia, was good enough for the top prize.

In her opinion, however, Shade backed the Recording Academy as she took to Instagram to reply those saying Burna Boy was cheated.

According to her, Burna Boy knows that it is an honour to have been nominated in the same category as such a legend.

She stated further that if late Afrobeats legend, Fela, was alive, he and Kidjo would have been at the same level in the music industry.

Driving home her point in the video, she wrote: “#MyFellowHumans. It’s been a minute but I had to just drop this video real quick. For the Burna Boy fans who claim he has been cheated, pls know your history, know your music. Burna is a great artiste but it takes more than 1 Album and 2 years of Faux touring the US to become the standard for World Music #ImJustSaying #AllLove.”
