Nigerian Afrobeat star, David Adeleke, fondly called Davido, has expressed gratitude to his fans for their show of love and support at the 66th Grammy Awards held in Los Angeles, the United States.
The coveted music award held last Sunday brought disappointment to many fans of the singer due to the loss of Nigerian music sensations, including Davido and Burna Boy, who failed to win in their various nominated categories.
The other three Nigerian singers nominated and also failed to make the list of winners were Ayra Starr, Olamide, and Asake.
However, Davido took to his Instagram page to appreciate his fans and the organisers of the Grammy Awards, Recording Academy, for his nomination.
The singer congratulated the winners of Grammys on their various categories, saying “Grammy week was a vibe”.
He wrote: “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.”
The music stars’ failure to win in their nominated categories sparked great disappointment and frustration among fans, music lovers, as well as the Nigerian music communities.

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.
Davido had earlier celebrated three nominations at the 2024 Grammys – Best Global Music Performance, Best Global Music Album, and Best African Music Performance.
Burna Boy also received four nominations in 2024 – Best Melodic Rap Performance, Best Global Music Performance, Best African Music Performance, and Best Global Music Album.
