2019 Grammy Award

                The Grammy 2019…

The Grammy awards has come and gone with loads of winners, but the man of the hour was no other than Chidish Gambino. The Actor/singer went home with four plaques on the night which was hosted by the ever sweet and delectable Alicia Keys, also notable faces such as Michelle Obama, Jada Pickett just to mention a few where in attendance. Sadly, our own Seun Kuti did not win his own category just like Femi Kuti has failed to win, but the winners of that category; The Soweto Choir more than deserved it. They have been exceptional. Also movies like Black Panther, A star is born and the greatest showman won something for their sounds which I am glad. Without further ado let us go right through the list of winners (Not the full list).
