On Instagram, SOJA reacted to their nomination hours before they were announced as winners.
“I can remember in the days we used to watch Buju Banton, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh
Pick up a six-string and just tell me where to go if you could tell me then about now, I would never know And now the tour bus is pulling up to every city And all my old friends are still the ones who play with me And every single song that I sing, I’m still smiling Remember that the journey is all about the timing…” #SOJA #Grammys2022 #BeautyInTheSilence @recordingacademy,” the band’s Instagram account said.
The top forerunner for this year’s awards was dancehall artist Spice who is the first female dancehall artist to be nominated in the category. She was recently recognized with the black women in music award from Women in Media for her contributions to music and media.
