Grammy Awards: Burna Boy Losses To Angelique Kidjo




Nigerian famous singer Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy has lost the 2020 Grammy Award for the Best World Music Album.

He lost the award to Beninese singer-songwriter, Angelique Kidjo, who was on Sunday announced the winner of the Best World Music Album at the 62nd Grammy Awards.

Others nominated in the category alongside Burna Boy were Altin Gun, "Gece", Bokante & Metropole Orkest conducted by Jules Buckley, "What Heat", Nathalie Joachim with Spektral Quartet, "Fanm D'Ayiti", and Angelique Kidjo, "Celia".

Burna Boy has had a remarkable career, especially in the past one year.
In 2019, the singer was the recipient of several coveted awards including Best International Act at the BET Awards.

However, he has failed to clinch the much expected award like other home-grown Nigerian singers such as King Sunny Ade, Femi Kuti and Seun Kuti, who were all nominated in the past although it was Burna Boy’s first Grammy nomination and his multiple award winning African Giant was widely expected to clinch it for him.
