Nigerian singer Aramide was in an emotional state as she was inducted into the Recording Academy (the GRAMMYs®) Governance Board.

She took to her Instagram page and said: “I am happy to announce to you that after being an active voting member of the recording academy for years, this Monday, I will be inducted into the Recording Academy (the GRAMMYs®) Governance Board. I will now be a part of the Governors for the Washington D.C Chapter board.”

Aramide made a longer post on her Twitter feed where she spoke about a couple of dark moments in her life.

Here’s what she had to say:

“When I started music, all I knew was I wanted to sing. I just wanted my voice 2 be heard. But now, music is so much more 4 me, its more than just makin my voice heard. Its more about inspiring, elevating, uplifting, influencing, encouraging and telling different beautiful stories

“I was at a certain point in my life where everything seemed lost. I was in a state of despair, I was hopeless, unhappy, dejected and scared-scared to fail, scared I wouldn’t make it, scared my music will not be accepted. Life was beginning to feel like a nightmare in a nightmare

“I was numb-numb to emotions, numb to life. But there’s one thing about music…where words fail, music speaks. Music provokes lots of emotions and I channeled everything I felt at that point into my music.

“I’m most definitely proud of where the music has brought me, proud of the many lives it has touched, proud of the people I’ve been able to inspire and encourage through music. I’m proud of the beautiful stories I’ve been able to tell

“And today Im happy to announce to you that after being an active voting member of the recording academy for years, this Monday, I will be inducted into the Recording Academy (the GRAMMYs®) Governance Board. I will now be a part of the Governors for the Washington DC Chapter board

“I’m beyond elated, and I am using this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported and shown me love. To everyone who accepted my music and gave me a chance to inspire and tell beautiful stories. Thank you!! I’m happy and I cannot wait to see what the future holds.”

 

We congratulate Aramide on her amazing achievement and we wish her all the best moving forward.
