Regardless of Tyla, the one non-Nigerian nominee within the Finest African Music Efficiency class, profitable the award, many Nigerians have criticized the Recording Academy for alleged complicity.
Timaya went on to say that Nigerian awards are even worse than the Grammys with regards to credibility.
