“It takes more than 1 Album and 2 years of Faux touring the US to become the standard for World Music” Shade Ladipo reacts to Burna Boy’s Grammy Award loss

Shade Ladipo has responded to those saying Burna Boy was “cheated” out of winning the Grammy Awards.



Burna was nominated in the category for Best World Music Album but he lost to legendary Beninese singer, Angelique Kidjo.



Some Nigerians felt he was the most deserving of the award. But media personality, Shade Ladipo does not agree and she addressed it in a video.



In the video shared to Instagram, Shade Ladipo said that even Burna Boy knows that it’s an “honour” to have been nominated in the same category as the legendary Angelique.



She added: “If Fela was alive, Fela and Angelique Kidjo, they’re mates.”



She went on to reiterate that the person Burna Boy looks up to – Fela – is the one in the same league as Angelique.



Sharing the video, she wrote:

It’s been a minute but I had to just drop this video real quick
For the Burna Boy fans who claim he has been cheated, pls know your history, know your music
Burna is a great artiste but it takes more than 1 Album and 2 years of Faux touring the US to become the standard for World Music
