Nigerian superstar Davido has finally bagged his first Grammy Awards nominations, after years of speculation and anticipation. The singer was nominated in three categories for the 2024 Grammy Awards:
- Best Global Music Performance
- Best African Music Performance

However, Davido has always maintained that he was not in a hurry to win a Grammy and that he was focused on making music that his fans would love.
In a recent Twitter post, Davido said:
