Well-known American musician, The Weeknd has announced that it will boycott a Grammys award going forward after being excluded from the 2021 nominations.
For years, the Grammys have faced accusations of bias against black artists and have an obscure voting system that critics say is unfair and untrue.
Popular Rapper Drake also revealed that the Grammys were losing their relevance after this year’s announcement.
Drake revealed that he was among a lot of music fans who expected The Weeknd ‘s big album’ After Hours’ to be announced but it was cheap.
He also noticed that Weeknd was a gray for either album or song of the year, but the Grammys did not name him.
However, The Weeknd, in a statement released to the New York Times, revealed that it would be a boy on the awards from now on.
“Because of the secret committees, I will not allow my label to submit my music to the Grammys.
“It is clear that the system has been taken over and that people are being given the opportunity to celebrate their hard work,” he said.
Responding, Harvey Mason Jr., the academy’s interim chief executive, said the organization is committed to its own development.
“We are all upset when someone is upset, but I would say we are constantly changing.
“We’re going to take a hard look at how we can improve our awards process, including nomination review committees,” Mason said.
