Daughter of hip-hop couple Beyonce and Jay-Z, has just won her first National Association for the Advancement for Coloured People (NAACP) trophy at just eight years old, proving to be a true cultural icon just like her grand mother, Tina Lawson described her to be.
Now, if you would recall Beyonce’s Brown Skin Girl off from her 2019 Spirit album, which featured Wizkid, Blue Ivy’s voice could be heard in the intro and outro of the song. The same song has won the ‘Best Outstanding duo, Group or Collaboration’ at the just concluded image awards.
Tina Lawson also celebrated the child star by congratulating her via social media. “Congratulations BLUE IVY on your NAACP award last night for songing and writing on ‘Brown Skin Girl’ from the Album The Gift,” she wrote. “The youngest artist to win a major award. Grandma is soo proud of you. 8 years old!!!! You are giving all the beautiful little brown girls a voice.” She gushed.
The afro-haired girl also got recognition from the BET Soul Train Awards last year when she was given the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award for songwriting.
Beyonce, of course, is responsible for Ivy’s success story as she has cleverly featured her in her own body of works, thus introducing her to the world on major platforms.
