Burna Boy Is The Biggest Artiste In Africa – Grammy Organizers

In a resounding acknowledgment of his global impact and musical prowess, the organizers of the popular Grammy Awards have declared Burna Boy as the undisputed heavyweight of Africa.

The Nigerian Afrobeat superstar has been described by the Recording Academy as the biggest Afrobeat artiste, and the biggest musician in Africa.

This comes after the ‘Like To Party’ singer secured a total of four nominations for the 2024 Grammy Awards.  The Academy made the assertion in a statement published on its website on Saturday, November 11, 2023, congratulating Burna Boy and other nominees for the newly created Best African Music Performance category at the 2024 Grammys.

The Grammys said Burna Boy is “firmly in his imperial era” having collaborated with “global stars such as Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber,” and also earned his first UK No. 1 album this year with “the classic hip-hop influenced I Told Them…, featuring appearances from 21 Savage, J. Cole, RZA, and GZA.”

The Academy further said, “There’s not a bigger star in Afrobeats, or even the whole of Africa itself, than Burna Boy. He nabbed two consecutive Best Global Album GRAMMY nods for his albums Twice as Tall and African Giant, and he’s also collaborated with global stars such as Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber.”

Meanwhile, Ghanaian music fans were disappointed to learn that award-winning Reggae/Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy, missed out on a coveted spot in the Grammy Awards nominations for his latest album, “5th Dimension.”
