DISCUSS: Which Nigerian Artist Do You Think Is Most Likely To Win A Grammy First?


The 2016 edition of the very coveted Grammy awards went down 2 days ago, and it's that time once again to not only admire the best musicians of the past year from an international standpoint, but also check and reflect on who among our current crop of Nigerian artists can win a Grammy. Which Nigerian artist is most likely to win it first?

While Mali, South Africa, Senegal, and Benin can all boasts of having Grammy winners (in some cases multiple), we don't have any yet especially being a country that produces so much music on a yearly basis. Most recently Femi Kuti was nominated four times at the Grammy Awards but has come up short each time.

So who's likely to win a first Grammy for Nigeria?

► Many Nigerian artists sing about it in their lyrics and talk about it *coughs.9ice, Skales, Burna*, but do they really think they will?

► Do they make the music that will take them to that podium?

► Are they getting the international PR and promotion they should?

History suggests Femi Kuti, who has 4 nominations across previous years, has the best chance of winning one first, but time is against him. Other names that get thrown around a bit are AsaDareyLagbajaTimi DakoloNnekaPraiz, and Brymo. But these are just the names that get associated with the award quite a bit. It could be anyone quite honestly. So I ask;

Which Nigerian Artist Is Most Likely To Win A Grammy First?
