While this isn’t the first year this event has occurred, this was the Grammy’s first year with a new category, “Best African Performance.” This massive win opens unimaginable doors for the future of African media within mainstream American content. 

In the spirit of celebration, the Brunch appeared lively in anticipation of the following day’s award ceremony. 

According to Rolling Stone, it began with a choreographed performance from dance group AfroMekah and proceeded with the Guests of Honor from The Recording Academy, CEO Harvey Mason Jr, and President Panos A Panay attended with the musical stylings of DJ Fredy Muks. 

This event calls for celebrating African superstars being recognized on the biggest night in music. 

With attendees like Adesope Olajide, Kojo Anime, Irene Agbontaen, and Myx Quest, the brunch contained a variety of creatives from the African diaspora.

The African Nominee Brunch provides a broad range of opportunities to network and expand horizons within the industry.
