The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has congratulated music stars Burna Boy and Wizkid over their Grammy Award victories.
In a statement signed by the Special Assistant To The President (Media) Office of the Minister of Information and Culture, Olusegun Adeyemi in Lagos on Monday, the Minister described the much-deserved awards as fitting rewards for the persistent hardwork of the duo.
He said the awards also represented a global endorsement for the Afrobeat genre of music that has propelled Nigeria’s increasing dominance of the music world.
Alhaji Mohammed expressed the hope that the clinching of the prestigious awards by the two music stars would not only spur them to greater heights, but would also serve as a source of inspiration for others.
On Sunday, two Nigerian artists made Nigeria proud as Burna Boy won the Best Global Music Album for his fourth album “Twice as Tall” while Wizkid won the Best Music Video for his song with Beyoncé “Brown Skin Girl.”
