The Annual Grammy Awards which recognizes the best recordings, compositions and artistes of the eligibility year, running from September 1, 2019, to August 31, 2020, deemed what is truly a great album ‘Twice as Tall’; where the Grammy award winner sang in at least three different languages, drew in artistes from across Africa and across the diaspora to fuse his Afrofusion style into one percolating whole; as outstanding in its artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry.

One of the biggest contributors to the explosion of the Nigerian music scene, whose hybrid black-music style exploded in the last few years, the African Giant has in many ways earned his plaudits. From getting recognized by a number of notable platforms as the African artiste whose lead to follow, to the successes of his headline concerts, Burna is getting rewarded for the work he has put in over the last ten years and is poised to continue to enjoy the benefits with more good music.

Burna Boy’s recent wins include, The MTV European Music Awards (EMA) for ‘Best African Act’, The All Africa Music Awards album of the year and winner, ‘Best International Act’ for the Black Entertainment (BET) awards and The 2020 Dutch Edison Award for ‘World Album’.
