Tacha asserted that the award event, which was one of the largest Afrobeats award ceremonies, should not have been taken abroad because it was a prominent indigenous award that was supposed to be held here in Nigeria.

She said, “How is it that the biggest music award show in Africa is being held abroad back-to-back? What did our colonial master do to us? What is this slave mentality? How does it make sense?

“The first time it was held in the US last year, it made sense because Afrobeat was still getting so much momentum and artists were filling up stadiums.

“Even BET would not hold their award in Africa, not in South Africa or Nigeria, so why are you taking such a prestigious indigenous award abroad?

“With this slave trade mentality, we feel that we are out of it, but if we think about it, are we really out of it?.
