Burna Boy’s Grammy Award win at the 63rd edition of the scheme sparked a discussion in Ghana, with several people citing reasons why no Ghanaian artist has achieved such success.
The Nigerian won Best Global Music Album, while ‘Brown Skin Girl,’ a Beyonce music video featuring Nigeria’s Wizkid, won ‘Best Music Video.’
Stonebwoy poked Ghana in his attempt to congratulate the Nigerians, eliciting a response from Samini, who opined that the journey begins with proteges respecting veterans, a statement that has since rekindled the apparent tension between a godfather and his son.
According to Stonebwoy, Nigerians have been “holding the mantel for Africa when it comes to entertainment on the global scene”, hence “all other African nations [should] give it up for Nigeria for their constant efforts…”
“As for Ghana, smh [shaking my head], I’ll be back…” he added.
What does it take to win a Grammy Award? Did Stonebwoy goof? Did his tweet warrant such a response from Samini?
