Nigerians, however, remain optimistic, proclaiming that their national team, the Super Eagles, will triumph where it matters most.

Tyla’s winning song, “Water,” triumphed over tracks by Davido, Ayra Starr, and Burna Boy. Moreover, this solidified South Africa’s victory in the African music scene. Despite the absence of a Grammy win. Nigerians have called on their team to avenge this loss in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals against South Africa in Ivory Coast.

Tyla became the inaugural winner of this category and expressed her joy during her acceptance speech at the award ceremony.

Burna Boy’s Spellbinding Performance Captivates the Audience

Although Burna Boy failed to secure a Grammy this year. However, his captivating performance at the ceremony left the audience in awe. Despite dominating the African music scene.
