Nigerian Afrobeat star Davido has thanked his fans for their love and support at the 66th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

The Grammy-nominated singer took to his Instagram page @davido to appreciate his fans and the organisers of the Grammys @recordingacademy for their recognition.

“Grammy week was a vibe! Thank you for all the love from my supporters, and thank you to the @recordingacademy for recognising me.

Big congrats to the winners of the night,” he wrote.

The awards held in Los Angeles on Sunday disappointed fans due to the loss of Nigerian music sensations like Davido and Burna Boy, who failed to win in their various nominated categories.

The other three Nigerian artistes nominated who failed to make the list of winners were Ayra Starr, Olamide, and Asake.

The music stars’ failure to win in their nominated categories sparked great disappointment and frustration among fans, lovers of music, and the Nigerian music communities.

South African singer Tyla emerged victorious with her song ‘Water’ in the Best African Music Performance category.

Also, in the much-anticipated Best Global Music Album category, Davido and Burna Boy fell short, with Shakti’s ‘This Moment’ clinching the coveted award.

The standard-bearer of Afrobeat, Davido, earlier celebrated three nominations at the 2024 Grammys: Best Global Music Performance, Best Global Music Album and Best African Music Performance.

Nigerian music star Burna Boy received four nominations in 2024: Best Melodic Rap Performance (‘Sittin’ on Top of the World’ with 21 Savage).

Others are Best Global Music Performance (Alone), Best African Music Performance (City Boys) and Best Global Music Album (I Told Them).
