Nigerian superstar Burna Boy receives his second Grammy nomination for his album; “Twice As Tall”. He is nominated under the World Music Album. Furthermore, this is the second year in a row that Burna Boy is getting a nomination in this category.
Nominated alongside other entertainers like Antibalas, Bebel Gilberto, Anoushka Shankar, and Tianariwen, he is in good company.
He snagged his first nomination last year with his “African Giant” album but lost the award to Angelique Kidjo. With this nomination for the 2021 Grammy awards, he has another shot at bringing home the much-coveted award.
“Twice As Tall” is a 15-track album that was released on August 14th. A blooming follow up to his critically acclaimed 2019 album “African Giant”.
Burna Boy says the album is “a journey through a bunch of emotions and energies at different points in time. It has now morphed into something bigger than me. It serves as a bridge for mankind to show that we’re all different but still very much the same.” He acknowledged that the project is an extension of his Pan-African agenda on the Grammy-nominated “African Giant” album.
The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards is slated to hold on January 31, 2021, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Hosted by Trevor Noah, It will recognize the best recordings, compositions, and artists of the eligible year- September 1, 2019, to August 31, 2020.
