The ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) and the main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party, have celebrated Afrobeat stars Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy, and Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun also known as Wizkid for winning Grammy Awards.
Burna Boy clinched his first Grammy Award after winning the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category for ‘Twice As Tall‘, his 2020 project.
Wizkid also clinched the Grammy Award for his role in ‘Brown Skin Girl’, a 2019 song by Beyonce, an American musician.
The project, which is a track off Beyonce’s ‘The Lion King: The Gift,’ won the ‘Best Music Video’ category at the award ceremony held in Los Angeles.
The two major political parties celebrated the duo in a tweet and further encouraged them that the best is yet to come.
“We celebrate Nigeria music and afrobeat stars Damini Ogulu Burna Boy and Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun Wizkid on their GrammyAwards. The best is yet to come,” APC said.
