In an interview with Beat FM on Thursday, February 8, 2024, Timaya addressed the disappointment felt by many in the Nigerian music industry, particularly regarding accusations that the Recording Academy used Afrobeats for clout. However, Timaya disagreed with this sentiment, stating that Nigerian artists need not feel compelled to return home due to the perceived lack of credible local awards, including the Headies.

Timaya emphasized that the Grammy losses should serve as motivation for Nigerian superstars to push harder rather than be deterred by the setback. He encouraged artists to use the experience as fuel for continued growth and success in the international music scene.

The Recording Academy president, Harvey Mason, defended the Grammy Awards’ integrity, stating that winners are determined solely by the opinions of the voting body and that quality, not commercial acclaim, dictates the outcome.

In response to the Grammy disappointment, the Headies announced plans to return to Nigeria for its 17th edition, signaling a renewed commitment to recognizing and celebrating Nigerian talent within the country’s borders.
