Lmao. I saw someone tweeting that the Grammy is corrupt just because Burna Boy didn’t win. Why do you have to be so sentimental about this. If you know who Angelique kidjo is, you won’t spit that thrash. You think say Grammy na headies abi.

I told everyone that cared to hear then how slim the chances of Burna boy winning were immediately I saw her name there but they said "bad belle"… Now I'm texting them, they're not replying https://t.co/7GRAjcQNTD
