Africa: African Artists' Great Music Reap Rewards With Grammy 2022 Nominations

Cape Town — Africa is representing the best artists in the game.
Nigerian music superstar, Ayo Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, has bagged two nominations at the 64th Grammy Awards.  Wizkid was nominated in the ‘Best Global Music Performance’ category for ‘Essence’, his collaborative song with Tems. Essence recently became the first Nigerian song to crack the highly coveted music chart and the third in Africa.
Wizkid also has his ‘Made in Lagos’ album nominated for Best Global Music Album at The Grammys, alongside Femi Kuti and son Made Kuti’s ‘Legacy +’, Beninese singer-songwriter Angelique Kidjo’s ‘Mother Nature’ in collaboration with Nigerian powerhouse Burna Boy and Ghanaian Rocky Dawumi’s ‘Voice of Bunbon Volume’.
The self-proclaimed African Giant, Damini Ogulu best known as Burna Boy is at it again as he has been nominated for the prestigious Grammy Awards for the third time in a row. He was first nominated for the award two years ago in the Global Music Award category with his album, African Giant, but lost out to Angelique Kidjo. However, the singer was nominated in the same category in 2021 with his album, Twice As Tall, and he clinched the award.
South Africa’s Nkosinathi Maphumulo, popularly known as Black Coffee, has been nominated in the category Best Dance/Electronic Album for his album Subconsciously. He goes up against Illenium, Major Lazer, Marshmello, Sylvan Esso, and Ten City for the trophy.
