The Soundcity Best Male MVP and African Artist of the year, Burna Boy, took the twitter to answer question from his followers as he got bored with this self-isolation/ social distance hit the world now due to COVID-19.
Following his twitter handle today, he was asked how he felt loosing the Grammy to Angélique Kidjo. He replied “Sick. Totally sick.” Remember that his album African Giant was nominated for “Best World Music Album” by the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards which transpired at the Staples center in Los Angeles. He was in this category with other four great Musicians including: Altın Gün is an Anatolian rock and Turkish Psychedelic Folk band from Amsterdam, The Netherlands| Bokanté & Metropole Orkest | Nathalie Joachim & the Spektral Quartet | and the Beninese singer-songwriter, actress, and activist of Nigerian descent, Angélique Kidjo.
After Burna Boy confessed his feeling when he lost the award to Angélique Kidjo, he further twitted that “But my musical Mother @angeliquekidjo told me everything I needed to understand about the Grammys. So now I’m Twice as Tall.
That mean he got some sort of motivation from Angélique Kidjo. He then continued with his tweet that “Twice as Tall” is name of his next album which will be dropping in July. Burna Boy is a July born and his recent album which was his fourth studio album got a lot of world accolades. This means his fifth album coming July, “Twice as Tall” is whole package.
Four days ago, Burna Boy also tweeted “Stay safe everyone!! Remember this too shall pass.” He was then referring to Corona Virus (COVID-19). Do you know he graduated from Corona Secondary School in Agbara? LOL.
He also tweeted about his feeling about social distancing which reads ” The saddest thing about all this is people being put on unpaid leave in Nigeria. hustling is necessity that make social distancing hard! how’s everyone holding up? Let’s figure it out together.”
