Damini Ogulu, a popular known Nigeria afro pop artiste with the stage name "Burns Boy" gets nominated for the second time for a Grammy Award and he becomes the first Nigerian artiste to be nominated for the second time consecutively. The first time Burns Boy was nominated for his album "Africa Giant", which was last year, 2019. Unfortunately, he didn't win as he lost to Angelique Kidjo
However, it seems another luck came up for him. Burna Boy was known for his exquisite lyrics and amazing afro pop beats and this amazing talent was evident in his recently released album titled "Twice As Tall. He was nominated in the Best Global Music category alongside albums FU CHRONICLES by Antibalas, AGORA by Bebel Gilberto, LOVE LETTERS by Anoushka Shankar and AMADJAR by Tinariwen.
The Grammy Award is an annual award globally recognized as often considered a top-notch for any artiste who bags it. The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony will be held on January 31, 2021, at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, US.
However, it's surprising other popular artiste like Wizkid and Davido hasn't been nominated individually. But soon, we hope to see them in the limelight too.
We hope Burns Boy bring the award home this time.
