Burna Boy wins Best Global Music Album at 2021 Grammys

Earlier in 2020, Burna Boy’s album, African Giant lost the category to Anqelique Kidjo’s reimagination of Celia Cruz’s music on the eponymous, Celia.

On March 14, 2021, Nigerian superstar, Burna Boy won a Grammy Award for ‘Best Global Music Album.’

Burna Boy beat Antibalas for Fu Chronicles, Bebe Gilberto for Agora, Anousha Shankar for Love Letters and Tinariwen for Amadjar.

On November 24, 2020, Nigerian superstar, Burna Boy got his second Grammy nomination in the Best Global Music category. This award comes from his latest album, ‘Twice As Tall.’

Earlier in 2020, Burna Boy‘s album, AFRICA GIANT lost the category to Anqelique Kidjo‘s reimagination of Celia Cruz‘s music on the eponymous, Celia. Some of those moments inspired Burna Boy’s TWICE AS TALL. Burna Boy spoke about some of that on the opening track to ‘Twice As Tall.’

A few weeks ago, the Recording Academy announced the category formerly known as ‘BEST WORLD MUSIC ALBUM’ would become “BEST GLOBAL MUSIC ALBUM”

Burna Boy lost to Kidjo when the category was known as ‘Best World Music Album.’

Burna Boy’s win is Nigeria’s first since SIKIRU ADEPOJU won with Planet Drum over 10 years ago. Beyonce‘s video for ‘Brown Skin Girl’ also won for Best Music Video alongside Wizkid, Saint Jhn and Blue Ivy.
