Burna Boy has lost out in the World Music Album category of the 2020 Grammys to Angelique Kidjo. This was Burna Boy’s first Grammy nomination but it wasn’t meant to be.
During her acceptance speech however, Angelique Kidjo dedicated the award to Burna Boy; “this is for Burna Boy,” she said.
‘Four years ago on this stage, I was telling you that the new generation of artistes coming from Africa are gonna take you by storm and this is for Burna Boy. Burna Boy is among the young artistes from Africa that is changing the way our continent is perceived and the way African music has been the bedrock of every music.’
Although Burna Boy did not win, Angelique Kidjo dedicated the Award to him!
