Drama as Grammy mistakenly announces Nicki Minaj as winner



There was a mild drama on social media on Sunday night after the Recording Academy’s official X handle “mistakenly” tweeted ‘Barbie World’ by Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice as the winner of the Best Rap Song category instead of Killer Mike’s ‘Scientists & Engineers.’.

The announcement elicited excitement from fans of Nicki Minaj who hasn’t won a Grammy in her over 20 years career.

However, their excitement was cut short after the organisers deleted the tweet and made a new post, announcing ‘Scientists & Engineers’ as the rightful winner.

The blunder by the Recording Academy earned backlash from Nicki Minaj’s fans, with many of them describing it as “disrespectful.”

Meanwhile, American diva, SZA has finally won her first-ever Grammy with her collaboration with Phoebe Bridgers, ‘Ghost In The Machine.’

The song won the Pop Duo/Group Performance category.

Reacting to the feat, SZA wrote in an X post on Sunday night: “Holy sh*t thank you @phoebe_bridgers !!!I F*cking love you b*tch.

“Thank you to @RecordingAcad !!!!!!! I’m so grateful nd thank you to every producer on this record, especially rob and Carter. love u gang. We got this one.”
