Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has corrected netizens for making claims and praising Tems as the primary Nigerian lady to win a Grammy award.
Recall that Tems was nominated within the ‘Finest Melodic Rap Efficiency’ and ‘Finest Rap Track’ and gained the ‘Finest Melodic Rap Efficiency’ class on Sunday evening, on the sixty fifth Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
Reno Omokri, nonetheless, has refuted claims that Tems is the primary Nigerian lady to win the award, stating that Nigerian-British singer Sade Adu has at all times recognized herself as a Nigerian.
In line with Reno, Sade has spent 40 years selling Nigeria and it might be improper to provide her credit score to Tems.
“Sade Adu has at all times recognized with Nigeria. When interviewed, she careworn her Nigerianness. She didn’t funkify her title to make it sound European.
In interview after interview, she asserted the truth that she is a Nigerian born in Ibadan. So, allow us to respect her. She is the primary Nigerian feminine to win a Grammy in 1986. In honouring one other feminine who eminently deserves to be honoured, allow us to not dishonour Sade Adu.
By saying another person is the primary Nigerian feminine to win a Grammy, what we’re telling Ms. Adu is that she will not be a Nigerian. I do know many individuals will rush right here to insult me. However earlier than commenting, take a minute to place your self in Sade Adu’s sneakers.
You’ve spent 40 years selling Nigeria. Insisting to the British media that you’re Nigerian after they proudly claimed you for Britain. Then immediately, you learn that another person is the primary Nigerian feminine to win a Grammy. How would you are feeling? If after you may have put your self in Sade Adu’s sneakers you continue to really feel the necessity to insult me, then please go forward.”
