Congratulations are in order for Nigerian singer Burna Boy as he has been nominated for the 63rd Grammy Awards which is set to take place on Sunday, January 31, 2021.
The 2021 nomination makes it the second time that the Nigerian singer would be nominated.
The Ye crooner was nominated for his recent album Twice As Tall under the Best Global Music Album.
Burna Boy was listed alongside an American, Brooklyn-based afrobeat band Antibalas, American singer Bebel Gilberto, British Indian singer Anoushka Shankar, and a group of Tuareg musicians from the Sahara Desert region of northern Mali called Tinariwen.
The singer’s first nomination came in November 2019 and it got many Nigerians excited as they prayed for him to win.
Nigerian have, however, not given up on the hope that the singer can still bring home the Grammy award as many have taken to social media to pray for him to win it this second time.
Burna Boy’s video did not seem to please many fans of Wizkid as they accused the Ye crooner of being jealous of their favourite musician.
Meanwhile, over the past few months, Nigerians noticed the close relationship between Burna Boy and Wizkid but that did not stop them from calling out the Odogwu crooner for sharing his video.
