Nigeria News Update
Issue #11 • View online
Dear MyNigeria reader,
Amidst the confusion that has rocked the nation in recent weeks, there was some good news this week.
On Sunday, March 14, 2021, two of Nigeria’s biggest music exports, Burna Boy and Wizkid made the country proud after clinching the prestigious Grammy Awards. It has been a long time coming as both artistes and several others continue to make strides in the international market.
At the end of a successful music year for Burna Boy, the African Giant won the Best Global Music Album category while Wizkid won the Best Music Video category for his effort on Beyonce’s Brown Skin Girl.
While the daily case count might have reduced, we will be wrong to assume the vaccine means the end of the virus. Nigerians are still getting infected daily. Always remember to adhere to the safety protocols.
So far, 162,000 Nigerians have been affected by the virus, while, 2,030 have died.
Our best wishes for a positive week ahead. Please send any comments, suggestions, criticisms, ideas, news, and features to editor@mynigeria.com. Follow us on all social media platforms at @themynigeria for updates throughout the day. You can also download the MyNigeria App from Google Playstore.
