2022 Grammy: Wizkid, Burna Boy Among Award Nominees (See Full List)

Music Of The Week

Wizkid, Femi Kuti, Made Kuti, and Burna Boy have been nominated for the 2022 Grammys.

The Recording Academy revealed the nominations for the 2022 Grammy Awards in a live stream on Tuesday.

Wizkid was nominated in the ‘Best Global Music Performance’ category for ‘Essence’, his collaborative song with Tems.

In July, ‘Essence’ became the first Nigerian song to crack the highly coveted music chart and the third in Africa.

After four weeks, ‘Essence’ would record another leap, climbing by 23 spots on the Hot 100 to hit 59th place.

In a surprise move, Wizkid then released a remix to the global hit, featuring Justin Bieber, the Canadian pop star.

Also nominated in the category is ‘Pa Pa Pa’ by Femi Kuti and ‘Do Yourself’ by Angelique Kidjo and Burna Boy.

Wizkid’s ‘Made In Lagos’ album and ‘Legacy +’ by Femi and Made Kuti were put up in the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category.

The 2022 Grammy Awards will take place in Los Angeles on Monday, January 31, 2002 and will broadcast live on CBS.

A number of changes have come to pass at the Recording Academy and its handling of the Grammys since the 2021 ceremony.

In April, the institution announced an end to its practice of secret-committee nominations in its Big Four categories and established two new awards for Música Urbana Album and Global Music Performance.

Over the summer, the Recording Academy updated its book of rules and guidelines to ban sales figures and chart numbers from being mentioned in “For Your Consideration” ads, too.

The ceremony is also being produced with an inclusion rider for the first time after expanding its voting pool to include more voters from “traditionally underrepresented groups.”
