A host of Nigerian entertainment executives have been spotted in Los Angeles ahead of the 2020 Grammy Awards Scheduled for the Staples Centre this Sunday.
Although most of them could have various reasons for being there, we could also speculate that they are there to show support and solidarity for their Nigerian brother, Burna Boy who has been nominated in the Best World Music Album category for his ‘African Giant’ album. Also in that category are Altin Gün – Gece, Bokanté & Metropole Orkest Conducted By Jules Buckley – What Heat, Nathalie Joachim With Spektral Quartet – Fanm D’ayiti and Angelique Kidjo – Celia.
Earlier this week, Burna Boy joined a slew of other celebs for the pre-2020 Grammys party and also gave a thrilling performance of his hit single “Killin Dem“. Other celebs spotted at the party included music stars like Billie Eilish, Lil Nas, Bebe Rexha, Wiz Khalifa, Kehlani, JoJo, Lizzo.
Some of the Nigerian music executive spotted in LA so far include Dayo Adeneye and Kenny Ogungbe, Audo Makori (Founder of Chocolate City Music), filmmaker, Tola Odunsi, Akins Akintugbe, founder of Urban Vision; Ayo Shonaiya, Film Producer, Lawyer and music talent agent; and Bankulli Osha.
