The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has congratulated all the Nigerian Grammy Awards nominees including Davido and Burna Boy despite losing their respective nominations.
The governor celebrated them in a post on his official X handle on Monday.
Sanwo-Olu wrote, “A special shoutout to #burnaboy, #davido, #ayrastarr, #@asakemusik, and all Nigerian talents represented as nominees at the Grammy’s, the apex music award in the world.
“Your mastery reached unparalleled heights on those exclusive platforms, showcasing world-class talent we’re immensely proud of.
“To those who may feel disheartened by the results, remember, in the eyes of your fans and Nigerians, you’re everlasting winners and with every global arena and stadiums you fill up, your representation of Afrobeat and Nigeria is unparalleled, and soon you’ll light up the stages you desire as triumphant victors.
“Cheers to more timeless moments as you continue to tell the world our stories with your music.”
