Nigerian Afropop superstar, Burna Boy won a Grammy Award for ‘Best Global Music Album’ on Sunday with his Twice As Tall body of work released last year.

Burna Boy beat Antibalas for Fu Chronicles, Bebe Gilberto for Agora, Anousha Shankar for Love Letters and Tinariwen for Amadjar.

It’s Burna’s second Grammy nomination after the nomination of his African Giant album in 2020 in the same category which he eventually lost to Anqelique Kidjo’s reimagination of Celia Cruz’s music on the eponymous, Celia.

Burna’s win comes moments after another Nigerian superstar Wizkid was announced winner for Best Music Video alongside Beyonce, Saint Jhn and Blue Ivy.
