Institute Lauds Burna Boy Over Performance At Grammy Awards

Executive secretary/chief executive officer (CEO) of the National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO), Otunba Biodun Ajiboye, has commended the artistic performance of Burna Boy at the 66th edition of the Recording Academy Grammy Awards held in Los Angeles, California, USA on Sunday.

The Grammy winning sensation, who is the first Nigerian artist to perform at the main ceremony of the Grammy Awards, raised global consciousness that has brought recognition to Nigerian culture with the hit song “Sitting on top of the World”.

Extolling Burna Boy’s performance which featured legendary artists Brandy and 21 Savage, Ajiboye said it was indeed a stamp of authority on African culture and Nigeria in particular that will see a perfect recognition of our culture.

While extending his commendation to Davido, Ajiboye said the artist has made a great mark in his chosen career and should not have any regrets as the world recognizes the fact that the Grammy was truly his but just didn’t come to him. He expressed hope that in the years to come, there will be Grammys to be won over and over again that will bring glory to Nigeria.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian government has assured of its continued support for Nigerian artists to keep showcasing their talents towards placing our culture on top of global civilisation.

The minister of art, culture and creative economy, Hannatu Musa, who represented Nigeria at this year’s Grammy, encouraged the nominated artists to remain focus and keep faith with the industry, saying even without winning any of the award categories, it did not take the shine off Nigeria as our music was aptly and perfectly presented to the world.
