‘Nigerians Cannot Win The Grammys, It Is Not For Us’’ Hip TV Boss, Ayo Animashaun Says

Hip TV boss and organiser of Headies awards, Ayo Animashaun, said this in an interview with The Tribune. “I really don’t understand why Nigerians want to win the Grammys. Grammys are not for us, but for Americans. We should get that right. They put everybody in one world music category. We are not their focus. It is not for us. Yes, we can win awards but they do not show us the way they run the award category during the show. I think we should make our own awards, our own Grammy and I would say it any day that the Grammy is not for us. They have built something big for themselves. Let them come and win awards in Nigeria or Africa. We don’t celebrate our own things. It’s just a shame. I have been to the Grammys many times and I don’t see many African artistes. They don’t particularly care...
