A rundown of Afrobeats melodies that are probably going to be designated for the new Grammy Awards class “Best African Music Execution” was delivered by Board.

The speculation and the eligibility period established by the Recording Academy regarding projects they might consider for the Grammy Awards 2024 have sparked a significant social media debate as American media outlet Billboard revealed the only Nigerian songs that might be considered in the new category for African music, the Best African Music Performance category.

Afrobeats songs that could be nominated for the 2023 Grammy Awards’ “Best African Music Performance” category were cited by Billboard in a recent article regarding predictions for upcoming Grammy nominations.

Afrobeats artists like Asake, Davido, and Rema could be nominated for a Grammy in the soon-to-be-announced 2023 Grammy nominations, claims a listicle by Billboard.

According to Billboard, the Recording Academy’s decision to properly recognize the Afrobeats genre and its success with a new category may have been greatly influenced by Essence and Last Last, arguably one of the biggest songs of 2021 and 2022, losing the best global music performance category.

The Afrobeats songs predicted by Billboard to be nominated are: ‘2:30’ by Asake; ‘Amapiano’ by Asake (feat. Olamide); ‘Charm’ by Rema; ‘Party No Dey Stop’ by Adekunle Gold (feat. Zinoleesky); ‘People’ by Libianca; ‘Reason’ by Omah Lay; ‘Sittin’ on Top of the World’ by Burna Boy; ‘Sowteto’ by Victony & Tempoe; and ‘Unavailable’ by Davido (feat. Musa Keys).

All of the names in this category would receive their first Grammy nomination, although Burna Boy would receive his seventh. The Grammy nominees for the 2023 show will be announced later this year, on November 10th.
