“Nigerian awards not credible, worse than Grammys” – Timaya speaks

In a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM, Lagos, Timaya, the Nigerian singer also known as Inetimi Alfred Timaya Odon, expressed his belief that Nigerian awards lack credibility.

Timaya’s statement comes in the wake of accusations against the Grammy organisers for snubbing all the Nigerian nominees at the 66th Grammys.

Despite Tyla, the only non-Nigerian nominee in the Best African Music Performance category, winning the award, many Nigerians have criticized the Recording Academy for alleged complicity.

Timaya went on to assert that Nigerian awards are even worse than the Grammys when it comes to credibility.

The host asked, “What is your take on a lot of people saying the Grammy used Afrobeats and we need to come back home and grow?”

Timaya replied, “We don’t need to come back home. Even our own, which credible awards? Is it the Hip-hop awards, Hip TV awards [The Headies]? I don’t even know. They are not credible either. They are even worse than the Grammys.
