Campbell addresses recording academy

In a different portion of her post, the supermodel maintained that the recording academy has chosen to remain tone-deaf particularly as it concerns the growing influence of the afrobeats genre.

Campbell submitted that afrobeats should have its own categories for best song, best album, and artist of the year among all other subcategories.

For Cambell, Wizkid’s album was in the wrong category hence the snub at the award ceremony.

She wrote:

"#MadeinLagos Album and song Essence, was clearly in the wrong category how can you ignore the song Essence, The song by Wizkid, and Tems that was covered and remixed by Justin Bieber, you seem to isolate it under global when it should have been in the song of the year category."
