Nigerian awards lack credibility, worse than Grammys – Timaya

In a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM, Lagos, Timaya, the Nigerian singer Inetimi Alfred Timaya Odon, expressed his belief that Nigerian awards lack credibility, going so far as to say they are even worse than the Grammys in this regard.

This comes as some Nigerians accuse the Grammy organizers of complicity after all the Nigerian nominees were overlooked at the 66th Grammys, resulting in the award going to the only non-Nigerian nominee in the Best African Music Performance category.

The host asked, “What is your take on a lot of people saying the Grammy used Afrobeats and we need to come back home and grow?”



Timaya replied, “We don’t need to come back home. Even our own, which credible awards? Is it the Hip-hop awards, Hip TV awards [The Headies]? I don’t even know. They are not credible either. They are even worse than the Grammys.

“If we have a homegrown award that is credible, people would gravitate towards it. But for now, whether you like it or not, Grammy is still Grammy. We don’t have to back down [because Nigerian artists lost this year]. We are going again.”
