There are high hopes for afro beat superstar, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy to bring home the much-coveted Grammy award set to hold later today.
Burna Boy has returned to the nomination list for a second time.
Fans believe he has a better chance now after being beaten by Angelique kidjo in his last attempt.
He is nominated in the Best Global Music Album category for his 2020 album “Twice as Tall”, alongside four others including Malian band Tinariwen and US band Antibalas.
Burna Boy who rose to prominence in 2012 after releasing ” Like to Party” the lead single from his debut studio album, L.I.F.E has not looked back since then.
He has gotten series of international endorsements from global music acts and even former US President Barack Obama.
He has also won many music awards.
So far, he has won the BET Award, MTV Europe Music Award, All Africa Music Awards, Sound City MVP Awards, among many others.
The Afropop star who was a voice to reckon with during the nationwide #EndSars protest is lined up for the Grammy award alongside another music star, Ayo Balogun aka Wizkid.
Wizkid features in Beyonce’s Brownskin girl song. He has seen his name included in the award nominees list for Best Music video.
The nomination of Burna Boy and Wizkid has set social media abuzz especially Twitter with fans tipping both Burma Boy and Wizkid to deliver the award this time.
