President Bola Tinubu has congratulated singers Burna Boy, Davido, Asake, Olamide, Ayra Starr and Tems despite their failure to win any award at the just concluded Grammy Awards in the US.
Tinubu celebrated the musical marvels for putting Nigeria on the chart of cultural command through their artistry and anthemic earworms, building and earning our nation enormous soft power.
The President commends the artists for their fidelity to the art, audacity, and discipline in the pursuit of excellence.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale.
“Our superstars nominated for the Grammy Awards are all winners. I am proud of their exploits. They represent that Nigerian ideal; the courage to strive and succeed against all odds and the hope to stay true to purpose. I congratulate and thank them for being exemplary envoys of Nigeria,” the President says.
