To avenge Nigeria’s Grammy loss, the Super Eagles must beat South Africa.

The Nigerian Super Eagles have been asked to exact revenge on the country’s Afrobeats musicians following a huge Grammy rejection, which saw five West African finalists lose the Best African Music Performance award to South African pop star Tyla.

Six Nigerians were nominated for numerous Grammy awards when the list was announced months ago, and the announcement was enthusiastically received.

When the awards were announced on Sunday night, West African Time, there were tears and dismay because none of the Nigerian musicians who had been nominated in different categories had won a medal.

Burna Boy, the previous champion, lost four awards: Best Global Music Album, Best African Music Performance, Best Global Music Performance, and Best Melodic Rap Performance.

Nigerians, still reeling from the disappointment of losing to a continental foe, have urged the Super Eagles, who face Bafana Bafana in the AFCON semi-final on Wednesday, to seek revenge.
