WAIT!! Did Tiwa Savage Win Grammy Award Yesterday? Why Is Nobody Celebrating It? (See This)


Burna Boy and Wizkid each clinched an award at the just concluded Grammys for Best Global Music Album and Best Music Video.

As the celebration was going on, some fans on social media began circulating reports that Tiwa Savage also got awards which have generated lots of controversy on social media.

According to Vanguard, Tiwa Savage, Femi and Made Kuti featured in Coldplay’s 2019 album, “Everyday Life”.

The album got a nomination for Best Record Packing and Album of The Year.

The Kutis featured on the amazing record, ‘Arabesque’ where Femi Kuti had an amazing Trumpet solo while Tiwa Savage worked on ‘Eko.’

The album, however, did win the much-coveted album of the year award as it went to Taylor Swift’s Album, Folklore.

If Coldplay had won, Tiwa Savage, Femi, and Made Kuti, would still not have won a Grammy. According to Vox:

Generally, if you participated in creating a significant portion of the album (defined as at least 33 percent of its playing time), you get a golden gramophone.

Also, looking at the rules of the category, it says:

For albums containing at least 51% playing time of new vocal or instrumental recordings. Award to Artist(s) and to Featured Artist(s), Songwriter(s) of new material, Producer(s), Recording Engineer(s), Mixer(s), and Mastering Engineer(s) credited with at least 33% playing time of the album, if other than Artist.

Since the three Nigerian artists didn’t participate in creating 33% of the album, they will only get Grammy certificates and not gramophones.

Tiwa Savage has won several awards and one is “Best African Act at the 2018 MTV Europe Music Awards”, becoming the first woman to win the category.

Summary, Tiwa Savage did not win any Grammy Award. I mean the gramophones, but was given a Grammy Certificate. Fair enough.
