Wizkid received two nominations for Best Global Music Album and Best Global Music Performance, and the CEO was questioned if he was satisfied with the voting committee’s capacity to deliver without monitoring.
the Grammy CEO said;
I wasn’t nervous. I felt like we’d done a lot of important work on our membership. We’ve done a lot of outreach into different communities that we felt were maybe underrepresented in our voting membership. … So I felt like the timing was right for our membership to be able to directly decide who the nominees were. That’s why we felt good with removing the nominations review committees at the time that we did it.
It is a great record. He’s a very talented artist. I can’t speak to why it didn’t make it, but I do really love the record.
