The 65th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony will feature five new categories for the Grammys, including ones for songwriting and a special award for the best song for social change.

On September 26, the organizers announced that musicians from all around the world can now submit their songs for consideration as nominees for the Best Song for Social Change category.

According to the Grammy, songs in this category must highlight a current social issue, delve into a topic that has an influence on a group of people in need, and promote understanding, consciousness, and empathy.

The Recording Academy Board of Trustees will approve the selection of the winner after it has been accepted by a committee.

As a result, 30BG families, Davido’s fanbase, also known as the 30 Billion Gangs, joined forces on social media to promote FEM by Davido. They claimed the song deserved to win the Grammy for Best Song for Social Change.

As Davido once said, na God dey give Grammy, if na Headies you collect, collect am.

In order to be really honest with 30BG, one of the largest fandoms in Africa, FEM by Davido cannot be nominated for the award for best song for social change.

You would like to know why? Because the song is a diss track and the fact that it does not meet the requirements for eligibility listed on the Grammy website.

Even so, a number of diss songs have previously been nominated for Grammy awards, including Drake’s diss song “Back to Back” directed against MMG’s Meek Mill.

However, unlike other categories, this category is the best for promoting social change.

If you’re wondering who Davido disses, the song was a jab at Burna Boy, and it’s all over the internet.

Reasons Grammy Cannot Nominate FEM By Davido

  • The Award acknowledges a song that has had significant social influence and impact. This is one of the eligibility requirements for the Grammy Best Song for Social Change.
  • The song’s lyrics must highlight a current social issue, examine a topic that affects a group of people who are in need, and encourage knowledge, increased consciousness, and empathy in order for it to be considered for nomination.
  • The song’s lyrical content, artistic composition quality, and perceived effectiveness in conveying a message of empowerment and raising awareness of global social issues are all considered.
  • The criteria for choosing the Best Song for Social Change will be informed by the idea that social good is “an action that will result in a benefit being available to the wider public,” which include songs that recognize the fundamental humanity of all individuals.

The Award will honor a song that advocates for:

  • Understanding: Teaches about, promotes tolerance for, and/or increases awareness of the experiences of others.
  • Peace Building: Measures aimed at achieving or maintaining harmony or a state of disagreement-freedom.
  • Empathy: The capacity to sympathize with and comprehend somebody else’s emotions.
  • Being Positive: A positive, uplifting, or constructive feature or characteristic.

The Grammy award organizers said songs that promote violence or terrorism or contain hate speech, on the other hand, would be disqualified.

Therefore, they are advising you guys to FEM not to bother submitting the music or consider getting taken into account for the category of Best Song for Social Change.

Now let’s break down the lyrics to the song FEM by Davido.

“Na why 30BG we go para, para, para
Them go para for you”

It is clear from these words in the chorus that Davido is expressing the sentiment of his gang members who are prepared to escalate their rage.

That alone has disqualified the song for being nominated for best song for social change in Grammy.

“Before the, before the matter get serious
Before the whole matter gets dangerous
You need to make sure you don’t say too much
‘Cause if you say too much, I fit to run up on you
You see seh I get fans wey dey para gan
You see seh my on G pass G-Wagon”

Davido was boasting and issuing a gentle warning to the target of the song, who many believe to be Burna Boy, in the second verse of the song.

That’s another reason the song can’t be nominated for Grammy best song for social change.

Perhaps you should go listen to some calm and nonviolent music, like Ty Bello’s song “The Land is Green.”

Conclusion: We can clearly state that Davido’s FEM did not meet the requirements for the Grammy Award for Best Song for Social Change.
