The Grammy’s

African artists shone bright on music’s biggest night, highlighting the ever-growing influence of afrobeats, amapiano and African pop music. Hosted by comedian and media personality, Trevor Noah, the Grammy’s were a night to remember – with all eyes on Tyla, Asake, Davido, Musa Keys, Burna Boy, Olamide and Ayraa Starr as the first nominees of the prestigious Best African Music Performance award.
