American supermodel, Naomi Campbell has written an open letter to the Grammys to make “Afrobeats” have its own categories.
Naomi took to her Instagram page to congratulate Angelique Kidjo on winning and praised Burna stating that his loss was due to lack of education.
In her lengthy post, Noami wrote an open letter to the Grammys for categorizing “Afrobeats” – a genre which she revealed has brought joy and strength to her life into the ‘World Music’ category at the 2020 Grammys. She added that their misinterpretation diminished the genre
Naomi implored the Grammy board to reassess their perspective of the “World Music” Category and include Afrobeats Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year, and all the subcategories that the genre so deserves just like any other respected and recognized musical genre.
