#Grammys: Burna Boy losses category to Angelique Kidjo; Nigerians React

The African Giant crooner may have to wait for his turn next time!

Burna Boy may not have won at the 2020 Grammys, but he remains a winner with us!


South African Angelique Kidjo won the Best World Music Album award at the ceremony, and even she acknowledged the greatness of Burna at the award, dedicating the award to him.

He really does deserve all the praise, giving us the phenomenal album “African Giant” just after delivering the great “Outside.”

His wins in 2019 too, were phenomenal, with a widely successful world tour, and his album being the most streamed in Africa.

Several mixed reactions from Nigerians

Nigerians have however, taken to Twitter to react to Burna Boy losing the Best World Music Album Grammy award to Legendary singer, Angelique Kidjo.

Nigerian music fans believe that Burna Boy should have been given the award because his album was more recognized and also had commercial success. On the other hand, some explained that the Beninese legend truly deserves the award and that Burna would surely win the prestigious award in the future. See some of the tweets below:
