As excitement mounts for the highly anticipated announcement of the nominees for the 2024 Grammy Awards, we take a look at some Nigerian artists who could potentially be receiving nominations this upcoming Friday.

The Recording Academy has officially released the list of nominees for the 66th edition of the Grammy Awards, scheduled for Friday, November 10, 2023. The introduction of the Best Africa Music Performance category has opened up new opportunities for talented African and Nigerian artists to receive well-deserved nominations.

Thanks to the global surge in popularity of Afrobeats, the odds of Nigerian artists securing multiple Grammy nominations are on the rise. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of four Nigerian artists who are poised to earn more than one Grammy award nomination this Friday.



Given that Wizkid’s album ‘More Love Less Ego’ dropped within the eligibility period for the 66th Grammy Awards, he’s hopeful for four potential nominations this upcoming Friday.

Here’s a rundown of the categories and the projects that could earn nominations:
