Nigerian star, Burna Boy will have to wait a bit longer before he can add a Grammy Award to his trophy collection. The singer who was a fan favorite for the World Music award at this year’s Grammy Awards lost to fellow African singer Angelique Kidjo.

Burna Boy had been nominated for his fourth studio album African Giant, which was released in July 2019 to critical acclaim with the album being described as his “crossover moment”. The album is a mixture of Afro-fusion, Afrobeat, dancehall, pop and hip hop.

Accepting the award, Angelique Kidjo was all praise for Burna Boy saying he is changing how African music is perceived globally, before dedicating the award to him.

“Four years ago, on this stage, I was telling you that a new generation of artistes from Africa is going to take you by storm,” Kidjo said while accepting the award. “And the time has come. This is for Burna Boy!”

“Burna Boy is among the young artistes coming from Africa that is changing the way our continent is perceived and the way how Africa has been the bedrock of every music.” She added.

Others competing in the category included Turkish band Altin Gün, Haitian artiste Nathalie Joachim, and Metropole Orkest, a Dutch Orchestra group.
