Campbell added, “#MadeinLagos Album and song Essence, was clearly in the wrong category how can you ignore the song Essence, The song by Wizkid, and Tems that was covered and remixed by Justin Bieber , you seem to isolate under global , when it should have been in song of the year category.”
She continued, “This is a misrepresentation and a neglectful categorization of Music ONCE AGAIN . Give Afrobeats the representation it deserves . You are Ignoring 1.3 billion people. It will only make us Rise !! Afrobeats in our hearts Africabeats to the world ! 🇳🇬❤️🇳🇬🦅
