Nigerian singers Burna Boy, Tems, and Wizkid are currently the topic of discussion after the recording academy announced the nominees for the 2023 Grammys.

 

The Grammy Award, which is an award presented by the Recording Academy to recognize “outstanding achievement in the music industry” of the United States and beyond, is scheduled to take place on February 5, 2023, and on November 15, 2023, it rolled out its nomination list. 



Afro-fusion act Burna Boy clinched nods for his Love Damini under the category of “Best Global Music Album” as well as “Last Last” for “Best Global Performance.”

 

Talented Nigerian songstress Tems received three major nominations in the categories of “Best Rap Song” and “Best Melodic Rap Performance” for her contribution to the hit collaboration with Future and Drake titled “Wait For U.”

 

Tems also received another nomination for “Album Of The Year” as a featured artist on Beyonce’s “Renaissance” album.

Wizkid, who lost in the “Best Global Music Performance” and “Best World Music Album” categories at the 64th Grammy Awards, missed out on the 65th edition of the award as he didn’t release any music in the calendar year required by the Grammys for its 2023 edition.
