African excellence shines at Grammy Awards

With a decline in viewership and credibility over the years, the Grammy Awards took place on the 4th of February in Los Angelous.

The popular awards show paved way for some of Africa’s brightest stars to shine their lights. The event was hosted by South African television host and comedian Trevor Noah.

On the stage was Nigerian Burna Boy who performed alongside 21 Savage and Brandy to “Sittin on top of the world”.

South Africa’s Tyla took home the prize for Best African Music Performance for her hit song “Water”.

“Woke up to the news of our very own Tyla winning the Best African Music Performance for her song ‘Water’ at the #Grammys. She is the youngest African to win such a prestigious award, adding herself to list of eminent South African artists and musicians who have made an indelible mark on the world stage. @Tyllaaaaaaa we congratulate you and we celebrate with you. Your win affirms South Africa’s sustained success in various international fora. Thank you for your authenticity and for flying the flag.” wrote President Cyril Ramaphosa on X.

This is a clear indication of Africa’s influence on the global stage.
