Burna Boy Gets 2nd Grammy Nomination
Ace Nigerian singer, Burna Boy has gotten his 2nd Grammy Award nomination with his 2020 hit album “Twice As Tall” in the Best Global Music category.
This Is Burna Boy’s second nomination in this category. Earlier in 2020, Burna Boy’s album, African Giant lost the category to Anqelique Kidjo.
A few weeks ago, the Recording Academy announced the category formerly known as ‘Best World Music Album’ would become ‘Best Global Music Album.’ Burna Boy lost to Kidjo when the category was known as ‘Best World Music Album.’
The Recording Academy made the announcement via their official instagram page.
If Burna Boy wins, he will become Nigeria’s first Grammy winner since Sikiru Adepoju won with Planet Drum over 10 years ago. Beyonce’s video for ‘Brown Skin Girl’ got a nod for Best Music Video, but it’s unclear if that concerns Wizkid who is a featured act on the song alongside Blue Ivy Carter, Beyonce’s daughter and Saint jHN.
