African Music category at Grammys, God’s timing — Davido

African Music category at Grammys, God’s timing — Davido

Grammy nominee David Adeleke, popular as Davido, had stated that the addition of the Best African Music Performance category at the Grammys is "God's timing."

 Davido alongside  Asake, Olamide, Ayra Starr, and Burna Boy, was nominated in the debut Grammy category; 'Best African Music Performance' to recognise African artistes at the 66th Grammy Awards set to take place on February 4, 2024.

The Nigerian singer made this known in a recent interview with France 24, noting, however, that the recognition is long overdue.

The 'unavailable' crooner further expressed his happiness about the category.

The host asked: “What do you think about this new category, the Best African Music Performance that has now been added to the Grammys, late to the party or right on time?”

Davido responded: “God’s timing is the best. African music has been dominant for years. So if you’re asking me if we should have gotten recognition since, yeah, definitely. But things take time. As I said, God’s timing is the best.

“And I am really happy about this new category, not just for myself but my fellow nominees. It’s very beautiful given that people back home can make African music and win a Grammy. That’s really amazing to see. So I would say God’s timing, I wouldn’t say late.”
