"Bcos oyinbo dey the video na why."

In an exclusive interview with Legit.ng, broadcast journalist Gucci Augustus Aigbe shared his opinion about Burna Boy's loss and how the Grammys do not rate the Global Music category.

"I think the Grammys have created a category in Global Music, previously World Music to just dump every African based in Africa with clout in one category. They obviously don't even rate the category or understand it. A quick check on their site says streams and chart numbers will not be considered for the award, so which panel decided that Bayethe was good enough to win against Last Last? It is pure experiment and try and error."
