Netizens and some celebrities have reacted after Burna Boy finally received hisGrammy award plaque from the organisers of the event.
If readers will recall, earlier this year, Burna Boy emerged as the winner of Best Global Music Album of the year at the 2021 Grammy Awards. Burna Boy’s Twice As Tall battled it out with Antibalas (FU Chronicles), Bebel Gilberto (Agora), Anoushka Shankar (Love Letters), and Tinariwen (Amadjar) to emerge the winner. The win marks Burna Boy’s first Grammy Award after being nominated last year.
Burna Boy’s album is now the first Nigerian album to win a Grammy and the first Afrobeat album to win. This is the second time Burna Boy got a nomination in this category after losing to iconic Angelique Kidjo during last year’s ceremony.
Fans who were excited to finally see Burna Boy take his plaque, took to the comment section to congratulate him again. Don Jazzy, Brother Shaggi and Stefflon Don are among the celebrities who congratulated him.
