Burna Boy fails to win Grammy’s + full list of winners »

– –

Nigerian superstar Burna Boy who had a lot of support upon getting a Grammy nomination has lost out to Angelique Kidjo.

Although he was up against seasoned Angelique Kidjo, Nathalie Joachim with Spektral Quartet, Bokanté & Metropole Orkest Conducted By Jules Buckley and, Altin Gün, many fans were certain this would be his year.

Grammys happens to be shaping up to be one of the most competitive awards shows of the season.

But there’s no surprise there. The music industry continues to churn out hit after hit, making it increasingly difficult for the Recording Academy to choose just one person for the various categories. Choosing between Rosalia, Billie Eilish, Lizzoand so many new artists is no easy decision, but thankfully it appears that win or lose these stars are guaranteed to give fans their all.
