Yemi Alade, a Nigerian musician, has sparked an internet debate when Angelique Kidjo was named Best Global Music Album at the 2022 Grammy Awards.
Angelique Kidjo defeated Wizkid, Femi Kuti, and his son to win the category for her album ‘Mother Nature.’
Nigerians were disappointed when their dreams for Wizkid’s victory were shattered.
However, Kidjo’s victory is still a victory for Nigeria because her Grammy-winning record ‘Mother Nature’ included Mr Eazi, Yemi Alade, Sampa the Great, Burna Boy, and Ghetto Boy.
This stirred conversation on Twitter as Nigerians compared Yemi Alade’s sound to that of Angelique Kidjo.
They opined that Yemi Alade is underrated and will be the first Nigerian female to win a Grammy if she continues with her sound.
Here are some comments gathered by reporters from Twitter;
@Taiwoalabi “Mother Nature Album by Angélique Kidjo that just won GRAMMYs has Burna Boy, Yemi Alade and Mr Eazi on it. It’s a win-win for Nigeria.
@PrinceS “Wizkid lost but we still won.Congrats to Yemi Alade, Mr Eazi and Burna Boy who all featured on Angelique Kidjo’s ‘Grammy winning’ album, Mother Nature.Naija to the world.”
@TheOladeledada “Angelique Kidjo has 5 Grammy Awards. When that woman retires, she will pass the garment of Elijah to Yemi Alade and she will win #GRAMMYs someday. Congratulations Mama Evergreen of Africa.”
@Taiwolabode “This is proof that Yemi Alade should keep going. Her Grammy might just be around the corner.”
