The Federal Government has congratulated music stars Burna Boy and Whizkid over their Grammy Award victories.
While Burna Boy won the award for the Best Global Music Album, Wizkid shared the spotlight with Beyoncé for his duet with the American singer, whose song ‘Brown Skin Girl’ won in the Best Music Video category.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed issued the congratulatory on Monday.
In the statement he described the much-deserved awards as fitting rewards for the persistent hardwork of the duo.
He said the awards also represented a global endorsement for the Afrobeat genre of music that has propelled Nigeria’s increasing dominance of the music world.
Mohammed expressed the hope that the clinching of the prestigious awards by the two music stars would not only spur them to greater heights, but would also serve as a source of inspiration for others.
