The Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason reveals how to win a Grammy

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Recording Academy provides insight into the Grammy-winning process.
Despite high anticipation from Nigerian music fans at the 66th Grammy Awards on February 5, 2024, Burna Boy, Davido, Asake, Olamide, and Ayra Starr faced disappointment, losing all 10 nominations.

According to Harvey Mason, the President of the Recording Academy Board of Trustees, the Academy evaluates songs based solely on quality, with members’ opinions determining the winners.
When questioned about the process, Mason clarified that the Academy considers only the submitted song’s quality, ignoring factors like streams or fan numbers. The decision is contingent on the votes of Academy professionals in the United States each year.

“It’s not the streams, not how many fans, not how many followers, but purely on the opinion of the membership in that particular year, that is how you win a Grammy,” Mason emphasized to journalists.”
