See Why Burna boy Would Win The Grammy Award

Burna Boy grew up in southern Nigeria’s Port Harcourt, where his father ran a welding business and his mother was a lecturer and translator. It was his maternal grandfather who was the creative in the family, managing Nigerian legend Fela Kuti, who died in 1997, and whom Burna Boy idolizies to this day. In Nigeria, Burna Boy occupies a position not entirely dissimilar: Openly revered by his nation as a superstar, he’s frequently mobbed whenever he returns home.

“Nigerians love me a lot more now because they can see that the whole world likes me, too. They think I’m something special, but I’m not. I’m just a human whose skill is making music. Way I see it, everyone plays their own role in the world, and no role is more important than the other.” He has become one of the richest Nigerian artists, but says, “You are only as rich as where you come from, and Nigeria has a lot of poverty.” – he said

He has had several awards to his name which includes. For just last year alone.

BET Awards for best international act 2019

The Headies Awards for Artiste of the year 2019

MTv Europe music Awards for best African act 2019

The Headies Awards for Song of the year 2019

And his sweep on Soundcity MVP awards 2019 and 2020 respectively.

And many were not stated here.

No doubt Burna boy deserves the Grammy. No Nigerian musical artiste have come thus far to be recognized internationally apart from Fela kuti.
