Grammy Awards: Will Burna Boy Make History?



Burna Boy


Tomorrow, when the 62nd Grammy Awards holds at Staples Center, Los Angeles, America, Burna Boy will either make history or join the ever-increasing list of Nigerian artistes nominated in the Best World Music Album category but failed to pick the award.

Burna Boy’s last album, ‘African Giant’ was nominated in the Best World Music Album category alongside other musicians such as Altin Gün for ‘Gece’, Bokanté & Metropole Orkest conducted by Jules Buckley for ‘What Heat’, Nathalie Joachim with Spektral Quartet for ‘Fanm D’Ayiti’, and Angelique Kidjo for ‘Celia’.

Known to have been on a roll for a while, picking awards and selling out large concert and tours, fans want to see if the singer will pick up the award.

In 2019, his African Giant album was one of the most celebrated bodies of work from an African act. However, the icing on it all would be winning the Best World Music Album category, an award that has remained elusive to Nigerian musicians in recent years.

Femi Kuti is the most celebrated Nigerian musician to have been nominated in the category. However, the award remains elusive for him.

In 2018, Seun Kuti his younger brother was also nominated in the same category for his work’ Black Times’, however like Femi Kuti, Seun also failed to pick up the award.

If history will be made by Burna Boy remains to be seen.

Other Nigerians who will hope for bragging rights from the 62nd Grammy Awards include Wizkid for his part in ‘Brown Skin Girl’ off The Lion King: The Gift album. The song is nominated in the Best Pop Vocal Album category. Mr. Eazi, Legendury Beatz, Bankulli, Sarz, Tekno, Yemi Alade, Tiwa Savage and Northboi share the same bragging right for working on the album.
