The Federal Government has congratulated Nigerian singers, Burna Boy and Wizkid for winning the Grammy Awards last night.
In a statement on Monday, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said the award is a global endorsement for Nigerian music.
According to the statement signed by his Media Aide, Segun Adeyemi, the award will serve as a source of inspiration to others.
Mohammed described the much-deserved awards as a fitting reward 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.
