Grammy Academy CEO reveals ongoing consideration for Afrobeats category
The announcement by Mr. Harvey Manson, CEO of the Grammy Academy, that the organization is thinking about including an Afrobeats category in its prestigious award has been met with a range of reactions.
Harvey Manson, the academy's chief executive officer, disclosed that the academy has begun the long process of adding an Afrobeats category to the Grammys while speaking to the media at the Global Citizens concert in Ghana.
Harvey claims that the academy met with Afrobeats creatives, which included musicians, producers, songwriters, and executives, to discuss Afrobeats and its various subgenres.
He added that before discussions begin, the academy's members must submit a proposal for the creation of a new category. The first step, though, is the listening session with the Afrobeats pioneers.
What this means is that songs that fall under the Afrobeats subgenre will be eligible for nomination now that the Grammys have added an Afrobeats category.
Although the term "Afrobeats" is typically used to describe popular music from Ghana and Nigeria, it has frequently been confused in the West with any sound from sub-Saharan Africa. It is implied that South African music styles like house, amapiano, and Kwaito may be categorized as Afrobeats. Afrobeats might also be used to describe Congolese music like the Soukous or the East African Singile.
The Academy must correctly define the key components of an Afrobeats song because doing so will be the first step in genuinely honoring the right songs, regardless of where they were produced.
The implications of an Afrobeats category and the various effects it will have on the continent as well as the music will be explained by Pulse Music Desk.
