Burnaboy beating to grammy “world album” award by Angelique Kidjo
Damini Ogulu, Afrofusion sensation better known as Burna Boy, has lost out in his category to Angelique Kidjo, a Beninese singer-songwriter, at the 2020 Grammys.
She was announced the winner of the ‘Best World Music Album’ category at the the 62nd Grammy awards, held at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, in the early hours of Monday.
Kidjo, who secured the win with her project titled ‘Celia’, also gave a shoutout to the ‘African Giant’ crooner while making her speech.
The award ceremony started with a moment of silence for Kobe Bryant, popular basketball star, who died in a helicopter crash on Sunday.
With the nomination, Burna Boy joins the likes of King Sunny Ade, Seun Kuti and Femi Kuti, who had been selected for that category at the Grammy Awards.
