Davido, who received three nominations in his debut, joined Burna Boy, who received four nominations.

Olamide, Arya Starr, and Asake each received one nomination.

Together with South African singer, Tyla, they were all nominated in the inaugural Best African Music Performance category.

Burna Boy and Davido also bagged nominations for the Best Global Music Album and Best Global Music Performance categories.

Burna Boy received a fourth nomination for the 66th Grammy Awards, this time for Best Melodic Rap Performance.

However, at the awards on Sunday, none of the Nigerian quintets won in any of the categories they were nominated on.
