The multiple award-winning Ghanaian artiste is up for nomination alongside other artists in the Outstanding Soundtrack/Compilation Album category.
The awards confer honors on outstanding performances of people of color in film, television, music, and literature.
5. Andre Onana: Ajax and Cameroon goalkeeper banned for 12 months for doping violation
Ajax and Cameroon goalkeeper Andre Onana has been banned from football for a year for doping violation. The 24-year-old failed an out-of-competition drugs test in October when the banned substance furosemide was found in his urine sample. Ajax said Onana had mistakenly taken medication prescribed for his wife while feeling unwell. The club and Onana will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport against the suspension, imposed by UEFA.
Ajax said in a statement that UEFA had agreed Onana had not intentionally cheated but that the governing body believed “an athlete has a duty at all times to ensure that no banned substances enter the body.” Onana, who has 18 caps for Cameroon, will miss the delayed 2021 Africa Cup of Nations. Cameroon is the host nation for the tournament, which has been rearranged for January 2022.
