Burna Boy was nominated along side Angelique Kidjo from Benin Republic and other artists for the best album in the world music category. This nomination makes Burna Boy for brightest Nigerian prospect to have ever been nominated for the prestigious Grammy awards. Below is the list of other nominees in the category:#

Quote
Gece — Altin Gün
What Heat — Bokanté & Metropole Orkest Conducted By Jules Buckley
African Giant — Burna Boy
Fanm D’ayiti — Nathalie Joachim With Spektral Quartet
Celia — Angelique Kidjo



Several Nigerian artists have the dream of becoming the first Nigerian to win this prestigious award, can Burna boy break the jinx? This news came after he received the disappointing news that his show in South Africa has been cancelled due to threats of violence from South Africans who have accused him of disrespecting their country and demanded an apology or he will be in danger.
