Burna Boy gets a second chance at the Grammy Award with nomination for ‘Twice As Tall’
Earlier this year,Nigerian artist, Burna Boy’s album, African Giant lost the category to Anqelique Kidjo’s reimagination of Celia Cruz’s music on the eponymous, Celia.
On November 24, 2020, Nigerian superstar, Burna Boy got his second Grammy nomination in the Best Global Music category. Burna Boy second Grammy award nomination is due to his chart topping latest album, ‘Twice As Tall’ where he shed light on his journey as an artist, loosing the grammy award to Angelique Kidjoe, his battle and strife to world music domination and so much more.
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.’
If Burna Boy wins, he will become Nigeria’s first Grammy Award 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.
