Like it always says like mother like daughter, there’s no denying that Blue Ivy is taking after her Mother. At just eight years old, she’s already proven herself to be an absolute icon. Now, she’s won her very first NAACP Image Award.
The eight-year-old nabbed her first major music award Friday at the 51st annual NAACP Image Awards, on the category “Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration for Brown Skin Girl, alongside her mom, Saint Jhn and Wizkid.
Tina Knowles Lawson, Beyonce Mother, took to Instagram on Saturday to gush over her granddaughter’s achievement.
“Congratulations BLUE IVY on your NAACP award last night for [singing] and writing on ‘Brown Skin Girl’ from the Album The Gift,” Lawson captioned a photo of Blue from the “Spirit” music video, along with plenty of heart and applause emojis. “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.”
