Burna Boy bagged the much-coveted Grammy award in the ‘Best Global Album’ category for his “TWICE AS TALL” album.
Wizkid also won a Grammy for the Best Music Video’ for his role in ‘Brown Skin Girl’, Beyonce’s 2019 hit song. The Best Music Video award is given to the artist, video director, and video producer.
The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony was held virtually on March 14, 2021, around the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles.
Burna Boy’s performance was one of the high points of the Grammy Premiere Ceremony.
He performed a medley of his songs starting with the chorus of “20:10: 20” to “Level Up’ to ‘Onyeka’ and ‘Ye’, complemented by his band ‘The Outsiders.’
In his acceptance speech after he bagged the Best World Music Album, the 29-year-old Afrobeats star said:
“This a big win for my generation of Africans all over the world and this should be a lesson to every African out there, no matter where you are, no matter what you plan to do, you can achieve it because you are king.”
