The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has celebrated the Nigerian nominees for the 66th Grammys Award amid their loss.

It will be recalled that  no Nigerian artistes won in any of the categories they were nominated in.

South African singer, Tyla defeated a line up of Nigerian artistes including Davido, Asake, Burna Boy and Ayra Starr as she won the Best African Music Performance category at the Grammys.

Reacting to the development, Governor Sanwo-Olu, has urged the Nigerian nominees not to feel disheartened for not winning any of the awards.

Sanwo-Olu in a post on his official X, wrote: “A special shoutout to Davido, Burnaboy, Ayrastarr, Asakemusik, Olamide and Temsbaby and all Nigerian talents represented as nominees at the Grammy’s, the apex music award in the world.

“Your mastery reached unparalleled heights on those exclusive platforms, showcasing world class talent we are immensely proud of.

“To those who may feel disheartened by the results, remember, in the eyes of your fans and Nigerians, you are everlasting winners and with every global arena and stadiums you fill up, your representation of Afrobeats and Nigeria is unparalleled, and soon you will light up the stages you desire as triumphant victors.

“Cheers to more timeless moments as you continue to tell the world our stories with your music.”
