Laycon, Nigerian rapper and winner of the 2020 BBNaija reality TV show, has delivered a soulful performance of ‘All Over Me’, his hit song, for the Grammy Recording Academy.

The project, which is a track off ‘Shall We Begin‘, his debut album, featured on the Academy’s Press Play At Home, an initiative aimed at promoting fast-rising singers.

Flanked by five instrumentalists, Laycon thrilled the Academy and music lovers with a colourful rendition of the song on stage.

In a blog post, the Academy commended the rising popularity of the Afrobeats as a music genre and how artistes like Laycon are changing the narrative.

“Afrobeats may be a less-known genre stateside, but anyone interested in the qualities of human conversation should dig into the sound immediately,” it wrote.

“From Fela Kuti to Orlando Julius to Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo, the genre contains the rhythms of a ripping conversation—one you don’t want to end.

“And from Antibalas to Burna Boy, the younger generation of Afrobeats artists is taking up the mantle, too.

“For a fresh example of this, meet Laycon, a Nigerian Afrobeats/Afrorap artist who makes performing this music seem as natural as breathing.”

Since he made his stint at last year’s BBNaija show, the musician has continued to pull the strings in the Nigerian music landscape.
