Nigerians Rally Support For Davido’s “Fem” For New Grammy Awards Category

The Afrobeats poster-boy is being tipped to bag a nomination in a new Grammy award category.

Many Nigerians have backed David Adeleke, also known as Davido, a heavyweight artist from Nigeria, in his bid to be nominated for a new Grammy Award category.

The Recording Academy also announced the introduction of a new category called “Best Song for Social Change” in addition to confirming that preparations are now being considered to add an Afrobeats category to the Grammys. The academy claims that the category was suggested by its voting members to honor composers of message-driven music that addresses contemporary societal challenges and has the potential to have a beneficial global influence.

Due to the impact his Afrofusion song “Fem” made on the #ENDSARS Protest youth movement in Nigeria, a substantial number of music fans are now tipping and organizing support for the DMW frontline performer and owner to be nominated for the category.

Nigerian youths organized and led the #ENDSARS campaign, a nonviolent demonstration, in October 2020 to protest against police brutality, poor governance, and other mind-boggling vices in the nation. On October 20, 2020, at the Lekki-Toll Gate in Lagos, a horrific slaughter of citizens took place in response to the protest.

Davido’s “FEM” was an upbeat song that supported the cause during the demonstration and let the oppressors know that the populace was sick of “just talking” about change and want to see “actions.”
