The newly introduced Best African Music Performance is one category that everyone is looking out for. The Best African Performance category is part of the newly introduced category at the Grammy Awards ahead of the 66th edition of the award ceremony itself. Discussing the importance of this category, the Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. revealed the reason behind its creation. He said, “There’s a threshold that you like to see for a genre of music before it actually could make for a healthy category. When you talk about music coming from Africa, you’re seeing Afrobeats grow, you’re seeing amapiano and other genres coming out of the continent over the last three to five years. That started the discussions around, ‘Is it the right time?’ ”
