I’d like to take a moment to congratulate our Nigerian Afrobeat stars: @burnaboy, @davido, @ayrastarr, @Olamide, @asakemusik, and @temsbaby who were nominees for the just concluded 66th Grammy Awards.

The eventual outcome of the final result did not in any way diminish the exceptional talents of these great stars who have continued to position our nation on the global stage of music and entertainment.

The very nomination of such a large number of Nigerian artists in so many categories testifies to the giant strides that our citizens have made in the global music industry. This massive recognition is indeed worth celebrating.

We celebrate their talents and the creativity with which they have continued to contribute to the growth of our music and entertainment industry.

According to economic projections, our music and entertainment complex will generate an estimated $14.82 billion for the nation by 2025.

As I have always said, it is not about getting 100% results, but about making 100% effort. Our huge Grammy recognition says it all. Our music stars, through their creative ideas, have shown that Nigeria is home to tremendous talents and ideas, and we appreciate them and remain proud of their achievement and giant strides. 

Through our collective efforts as a people, we will build the New Nigeria of our dreams where more Nigerian youths will have the opportunities to discover their talents, develop their skills, and make global impacts. We must insist that a new nation is POssible. -PO

Slug: Kudos to six musical artistes
