Special Spesh, Davido’s hypeman, has responded to his Grammy Award loss. The 66th Academy Awards were held on Sunday, February 4th, at the Crypto Com Arena, where Davido lost all three nominations.
Davido received nominations for Best Global Music Performance, Album of the Year, and Best African Music Performance, all of which he lost.
Davido’s Unavailable was defeated by fast-rising singer Tyla, whose Water won Best African Music Performance.
Following this, Special Spesh took to his Instagram page to use Tyla’s song to throw shade at her. He stated that he wouldn’t give the power to dùmb Afrobeats, any Afro-fusion, or anything African.
He noted how Americans always love to have a part in taking control when things start to take over or get massive attention.
Shading Water, he noted how a song about squirting down won over Davido, Burna Boy, and Asake.
“We won’t give you the power to dùmb Afrobeats down or Afro-fusion or anything African.
That’s (White) Americans problem! When things start to take over and get massive, they always want a part, then try to have a say, then try to control”.
