/ -- Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. told journalists recently that the Recording Academy was in talks with the key players in the Afrobeats music scene to explore adding Afrobeats to The Grammys.
"I must say it is a good idea for Afrobeats to have its own category at the Recording Academy with 'hopefully' awards being offered for Best Afrobeats Performance, Best Song, Best Album (with maybe the album session being televised).
"Honestly, every fan of the genre felt robbed at the last award show and would much rather we have our own category than get blindsided again" said Sean Ibanibo, Afrosoundz Radio (https://www.afrosoundzradio.com
) Podcast Director.
"This is a big achievement for Afrobeats, the genre, having an award category in the Grammys. I feel like Afrobeats, the genre, has not been receiving the proper recognition it deserves when it comes to the Grammys. This is going to be a dream come true for all Afrobeats artists that have been fighting for it to happen" said Dj Bjay, AfroSoundz Radio's main DJ & Music Director.
