Nigerian superstar and self acclaimed Africa giant, Burna Boy’s album ‘Twice As Tall’ has been drafted for a Grammy award in the Best Global Music category.
Although this will be Burna Boy’s second nomination in this category. Earlier in 2020, Burna Boy’s album, African Giant lost the category to Angelique Kidjo.
Earlier, the Recording Academy declared 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.’
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.
