Burna Boy finally wins a Grammy Award

Published

on

On the intro of his 2019 ‘African Giant’ album, Damini Ogulu, known as Burna Boy boastfully sings: “See nobody do it better, better than me / Can’t nobody do it better, check am and see / I know say one day e go better, I go carry grammy / Because anything wey better require planningand true to his prophecy he put in the work required which earned him his first ever Grammy nomination but fell short of winning.

Come 2020, in the heat of a global pandemic, Burna Boy re-strategized, releasing another album in pursuit of his first ever Grammy, he named this one – ‘Twice As Tall’, TAT for short and straight from the get-go, on the intro he sings about his disappointment at not winning the Grammy in 2020. Burna Boy on the second verse of ‘Level Up’ admits: “I remember when I couldn’t level up / ‘Cause the Grammys had me feeling sick as f–k / Throwing up and sh-t / Asking questions like, “Why it wasn’t us?””, furthering the verse, he once again in true Burna Boy fashion boasts of his musical talent and ability: “Come back standing twice as tall (Mmm) / I never thought that I could level up”, showing his resilience and continued determination towards winning the prestiged Grammy Award.

Burna Boy must have been elated to say the least, when the news reached him of TAT being nominated for ‘Best Global Award’ at the 63rd Grammy Awards ceremony, his second nomination following ‘African Giant’, a back-to-back nod at that, putting him above his peers in that regard.

The 63rd annual Grammy, after being shifted from 31st January to 14th March due to COVID-19 complications, finally is here and Burna Boy has got his wish of winning the highly valued award come true as he is the recipient of the Grammy Award for Best Global Award (formerly Best World Music Award) for his outstanding music composition on his most recent album—Twice As Tall.

This makes Burna Boy become the first Nigerian musician to win a Grammy Award solo (i.e. not a band or a group and/or as a featured act) for their work or while being nominated in a category of their own for their project.

Congratulations to Burna Boy from everyone one at Wavyvibrations.
