Canadian rapper and producer Drake has withdrawn from the 2021 Grammy Awards consideration.

Drake got two nominations in this year’s Grammys; Best Rap Performance for ‘Way 2 Sexy’ and Best Rap Album for ‘Certified Lover Boy’.

According to multiple reports, the request to withdraw came from Drake’s management, which the Recording Academy obliged.

This means there will now be only four nominees in each of the affected categories.

So far, the four-time Grammy Award winner has not made a statement regarding the withdrawal.

For a while, Drake has been critical of the Grammys.

Last year, as part of the uproar over the award-nominations process and its use of so-called ‘nominating committees’. The Recording Academy’s system came under fire when Drake’s compatriot, The Weeknd, was snubbed for any nominations despite having some of the year’s most critically acclaimed and popular work.

Expressing his discontent with the award organisers, Drake wrote on his Instagram page last year, “I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards and just accept that what once was the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artist that exist now and the ones that come after. It’s like a relative you keep expecting to fix up but they just won’t change their ways.”

Actress Toyin Abraham has addressed those saying she is richer than her husband, Kolawole Adeyemi.

In an Instagram post she shared, the actress stated that she won’t allow anyone talk down on her actor husband as he is a hardworking man who has been doing a lot for her and their kids.

Toyin further averred that people need to stop this mentality that “famous people or the more famous ones are the richest in their family, relationships or even friendships”. She added that even though she is the last child and the famous one in her family, she isn’t the richest.

The actress urged social media users to celebrate their idols without ridiculing the hard work others put in.

She wrote; “I don’t usually do this and I am only going to address this just once and I hope this ends here.

“People need to stop this mentality that famous people or the more famous ones are the richest in their family, relationships or even friendships.

“Just because some people do not like to blow their own horns doesn’t mean they should be seen as less or incapable.

“I’m speaking up because I won’t let people talk down on my husband who is a very hard working man and is doing a lot for me and the kids. Do not ridicule his hard work and what he stands for.

“Everything he has, he’s worked for with his own sweat and he deserves it.

“I am the last born of my family and you’d think I’m the richest just because I’m famous which is far from the truth.

“It is 2022 please, we need to do better and stop this ill mannered mentality.

“Celebrate people without trying to pitch them against another person or ridicule their hard work or give credit to another. It’s so old and needs to stop.”
