Afrobeat hotshot Burna Boy has added a Grammy to his developing rundown of achievements.
In the wake of being named and losing to Angelique Kidjo for the 2020 release of the Grammy, the Nigerian vocalist and lyricist have made a greater rebound in the 2021 portion of the honors.
The vocalist won the Best Global Music Album class for his most recent assemblage of work, ‘Twice As Tall‘.
He beats American, Brooklyn-based afrobeat band Antibalas; a gathering of Tuareg artists, Tinariwen; British-Indian author, Anoushka Shankar and Brazilian-American vocalist, Bebel Gilberto.
Oneself acclaimed African Giant’s success makes him one of just three Nigerians who will be getting back with the Grammy Statuette.
Sikiru Adepoju is the primary Nigerian to have won the Grammy. He won it in 2009 with the “Worldwide Drum Project” a synergistic collection with Mickey Hart, Zakir Hussain, and Giovanni Hidalgo.
Ayo Balogun, the Afrobeats genius prevalently known as Wizkid, is the other Nigerian who has won the grammy; fortuitously he and Burna Boy got their first honors around the same time at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards service.
While Wizkid won for his cooperation with Beyoncé and Blue Ivy on the melody “Brown Skin Girl“, Burna Boy who is named ‘Odogwu‘ won for his fifth studio collection.
