Migos rapper Quavo, performed an emotional tribute to his late nephew Takeoff at the 2023 Grammy Awards.
On Sunday night( 5th Feb), Quavo graced the Grammys stage at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles to perform “Without You,” a solemn song he released last month in honor of Takeoff.
During the awards show set, the rapper was assisted by the Maverick City Music choir
Quavo delivered his sombre performance in front of a microphone stand adorned with Takeoff’s iced-out intergalactic chain. Quavo was also rocking a black eye mask.
For a nice touch, the Maverick City Music choir sung a part of Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s song, “See You Again.”
Takeoff was shot and killed on Nov. 1, 2022, at 810 Billiards & Bowling alley in Houston.
He was 28. The Migos rapper was at the venue along with Quavo at the time when an altercation broke out at the establishment, and gunshots were fired.
Takeoff was shot in the head, torso and arm. He died around 2:30 a.m. and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man charged with Takeoff’s murder, Patrick Xavier Clark, also known locally in Houston as DJ Pat, was taken into custody in November of 2022 along with two other suspects.
However, Clark is the only person charged with murder in the case. He was released from jail on a $1 million (Ksh.124,900,000) bond in January.
