Nigeria participated in a round table meeting with the Grammy Awards organisers, the Recording Academy, and representatives from four other countries to explore ways to promote global African music.

The meeting was held at the Convention Centre in Kigali, Rwanda. Its goal was to elevate Africa’s vibrant music and culture on the global stage.

In a statement, Nneka Anibeze, special adviser to the minister of arts, culture, and creative economy, Barrister Hannatu Musawa, said that the steering committee, including ministers of art, culture, and creative economy from Kenya and Rwanda, a delegation from South Africa, the CEO of the Latin Recording Academy, and representatives of Afrexim Bank and the Recording Academy, agreed to support and advance the creative industries across Africa.

Part of the statement reads, “I must salute our Afrobeat superstars, as their global success has brought the Grammys to Africa. I want to thank the legends of the Nigerian music industry who brought us here: Burna Boy, Wizkid, Don Jazzy, Dbanj, Davido, P-Square, 2Face, Asake, Tiwa Savage, and many others.

“Nigeria was invited to this meeting by the Recording Academy due to the global success of Nigeria’s afrobeats movement. As Africans, we are the future, and we must use our voice to promote unity and progress for Africans and the black race worldwide.”
