The win becomes the fourth time Angélique Kidjo has grabbed a Grammy award. The award ceremony is happening tonight in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards Show was scheduled to happen at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Mon, January 31, 2022, but the Recording Academy postponed it due to the outbreak of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

Before the announcement a few minutes ago, Ghanaian music lovers have been anticipating for Rocky Dawuni to grab the award as this becomes his second nomination at the globally prestigious music awards show.

The Ghanaian singer was nominated for the Grammys in 2015 for his sixth studio album titled 'Branches of The Same Tree' in the category of Best Reggae Album. The nomination made the 'Black Star' singer the first Ghanaian to be nominated for Grammys.
