“In his Words”
“Anybody that has followed me for years knows that I have always said that the Grammy is not our thing. They don’t understand us, they don’t understand our culture, they are never going to get it, don’t get it twisted, the Grammy will never get anything that has to do with African Music and African Pop Culture.
Shout-out to the Grammy and everything that they are doing, but when it comes to our culture, they will never get it and they have done that with hip hop as well”.
“Best Global award included Burna Boy and Davido, two great African Musician of the last ten years and of this entire generation. As an Afrobeat fan, I am heartbroken, the Grammy Awards benefited from the popularity of the Nigerian Artists that were nominated.
They used Davido for marketing purposes and knowing fully well that they are going to stab him in the back”, Adesope Shopsydoo said and it stirred massive reactions from the general public. Click on the link below to watch the video.
