"Why Afropop Artistes Can't Win a Grammy"-De-Code


The recent statement by HipTV boss, Ayo Animashaun, that the Grammy Awards is not for Nigerians, has continue to generate reactions from different quarters.


Also reacting to the statement is Nigerian High-Life singer Kingsley C. Egwu popularly known as De-Code.


According to De-Code who spoke to with the press in Lagos, musicians winning the Grammies in Africa are musically not the mate of many of the young artistes clamouring for the awards in the country recently.


De-Code stated that the musicians who can can dream of being nominated are the artistes whose music are more traditional and original.



"I just laugh at many Afropop artistes saying that they want to win the Grammy. Is it with the type of music many Nigerian artistes are singing now? I agree with Ayo Animashaun,Grammy is not for Nigerians. And i will explain further. First let me encourage all Nigerian artistes to sell their culture through music. You can't sell ice to the Eskimos; the only thing we can genuinely own and sell which the outside world will easily buy is our uniqueness, rather than trying to be like them.  Many reigning Nigerian artistes today still try to sound like Drake, Chris Brown or Migos. Winning an award like the Grammy is not even by hanging out with American stars, featuring them or they knowing you. It’s more about the unique thing you bring to the music table. You don't expect the organizers to put an R&B artiste from Africa on the nominees categories with real Americans, not to talk of that artiste winning when too many brilliant artistes in America don't have a nomination let alone win; just like you don't expect Ayo Animashaun to add Drake and Beyonce to the Best Rap and Best R&B categories in the Headies Awards respectively. Perhaps, it’s easy to be linked to the Grammy somehow if a foreign artiste features you and the song wins a Grammy, but we are talking about you owning one yourself", De-Code explains.


De-Code explains further; "You would realize that the African musicians who have either won or  nominated in the past such as Angelique Kidjo, King Sunny Ade, Femi Kuti, Ladysmith Black Mambazo,  Ali Farka TourĂ©, Soweto Mass Choir, Youssou N’dour, Owuor Arunga and many more are not “commercial” artistes. Their music even sound like folklore and many of these musicians have won multiple times. They are not the mate of anyone of the currently reigning crop of Nigerian artistes when you talk about their musical prowess. These people, aside their music being highly indigenous, are usually nominated under the International or World Music categories, which is the only category reserved for Africans and other outsiders. And who says we need to win Grammies to validate our talents?"

I am yet to make love with my sex doll – Nigerian singer, Mr. Shaa


Benjamin Ogwehi, aka, Mr. Shaa, is the first Nigerian entertainer to invest in buying a sex doll and he was not even shy to take the doll along with him to a shopping mall in Lagos recently.

However, in an encounter with Punch, Shaa claimed that he was yet to have sex with the doll.

He said, “My sex doll is a virgin. I named her Tontoh because she is a very beautiful woman. Now, I can have peace of mind and I can focus on my music. I did not buy the doll to satisfy my sexual urge; I just wanted something that looks like a woman that I can take care of. I don’t think of sex any longer; I only think of how to make music. I have not had sex this year and I cannot remember the last time I had sex. I am not trying to paint a good picture of myself. If I want to have sex, I know where to go once I have my money.”

Queried on why he got the sex doll if not for intimacy, he said, “I got the sex doll because I became tired of women. If I can spend N5m on a doll, I must have spent more on a lady and nothing came out of the relationship. I am not in a relationship at the moment but I was engaged last year. The outcome of the union was the major reason I invested N5m in a sex doll. I later found out that my two-year-old baby wasn’t mine. You can imagine how I felt when I got to know that I was not the biological father of the baby girl I was taking care of.” _
