The Recording Academy has declared afro- fusion artiste Burna Boy, winner of the Best Global Music Album category.

It was Burna’s second nomination in that category.
Recall last year, he lost to Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo.

Announcing on Twitter, the Academy wrote: “Congrats Best Global Music Album winner – ‘TWICE AS TALL’ @burnaboy #GRAMMYs”

It is worthy of note that state that this will be the first time a Nigerian is winning in this category.

Burna’s contenders were Antibalas, an American Afrobeat band that is modelled after Fela Anikulapo-Kuti’s Africa 70 band; Brazilian-American singer Bebel Gilberto; British-Indian sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar; and the Malian band Tinariwen.

Similarly, in the Best Music Video category, Wizkid shared the spotlight with American singer Beyoncé whose song ‘Brown Skin Girl: took home the award.
