‘We won’t give you power to dumb Afrobeats down’ – Davido’s hypeman, Spesh slams Grammy


Davido’s hypeman, Special Spesh has called out the Grammy organisers after his boss and other Nigerian nominees missed out on the award.

Davido and other Nigerian nominees were snubbed at the 66th Grammys on Sunday, with Tyla, the only non-Nigerian nominee in the maiden Best African Music Performance category, picking up the award.

Expressing his displeasure, Spesh accused the Grammy organisers of trying to control African music, vowing that Africans won’t give them the power to downplay Afrobeats or any other African genre.

On his Instagram page, he wrote: “We won’t give you the power to dumb Afrobeats down or Afrofusion or anything African!

“That’s (white) America’s 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.”
