Hi Folarin!
Cherie Hu

The point you make about social media is so apt. Never before have our heroes been so close, and the fervour with which certain fans court a simple ‘Favourite’ or ‘Retweet’ from their music idols, definitely speaks to collecting ephemeral moments of acknowledgement and interaction.

As for Chance, as much as I largely see the Grammys as being anachronistic and out of touch, his recent wins were so gratifying to see, as, like you say, he represents such a massive paradigm shift in the industry, and it’s good to see that recognised, as it hopefully paves the way for others to do the same.

Like what you read? Give Folarin Akinmade a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
