Reactions Trail Laycon’s Performance Of ‘All Over Me’ For Grammy Recording Academy
Reactions continue to trail Big Brother Naija 2020 winner and rapper Laycon’s performance for the Grammy recording academy.
Laycon whose real name is Olamilekan Agbeleshe thrilled fans on Friday in the latest episode of ‘Press play at home’ as he performed “All over me”.
His performance seems to have shut the mouth of those who opined that he is not a good singer and his win from BBNaija was out of pity.
Grammys on its website describing Laycon wrote: “He comes from a line of young Afrobeat singers keeping the genre on the lips of many, saying, “For a fresh example of this, meet Laycon, a Nigerian Afrobeats/Afrorap artist who makes performing this music seem as natural as breathing.”
The Academy extolled Afrobeats as a music genre and commended Laycon for making his performance ‘seem as natural as breathing’.
“Afrobeats may be a less-known genre stateside, but anyone interested in the qualities of human conversation should dig into the sound immediately,” Academy wrote.
His performance has gained him more recognition and applause from fans all over the world.
