The photo of Burna Boy's Grammy plaque has gone viral on the internet after veteran singer, 2baba, shared the picture on his Instagram page this morning.
Recall that Nigeria's Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, won the Global Music Album at the 63rd edition of the Recording Academy award ceremony. His 2020 album, Twice As Tall was voted as the best amongst several other nominations. It was Burna's second consecutive nomination in the same category.
Burna Boy, alongside Wizkid and Tiwa Savage, were worthy recipients of the Grammy Award on the same night, which left Nigerians proud and excited.
Due to the ongoing global pandemic and lockdown, Burna Boy and others couldn't attend the main show, so he was announced as one of the winners during the premiere ceremony.
Pictures of the plaque(with his name on it) had not been sighted until the legendary 2baba took to his Instagram account to praise Burna Boy with the picture of the plaque attached with it. 2baba wrote: “History made. It was all a dream, now it's reality”.
Burna Boy's win marked his first Grammy award. And now it serves as a form of inspiration to aspiring artistes in Nigeria and the whole of Africa. His resilience and tenacity towards scooping the Grammy, despite only earning only his second nomination, is a direct message to up-and-coming acts that they can achieve anything and reach any lengths they want to attain as long as they put in the work and dedication.
