In the category of Best Male R&B/Pop Artist, Burna Boy will be pitted against esteemed international acts such as Chris Brown, Drake, The Weekend, and Usher, showcasing his extraordinary talent and vying for the prestigious title.

Moreover, Burna Boy’s exceptional work as the video director for the immensely popular single “last last” has earned him a nomination in the Video Director of the Year category. He will be competing against other accomplished individuals in the field, including Asap Rocky, Dave Free & Kendrick Lamar, and Director X.

The track “last last” continues to receive acclaim, as Burna Boy secures two more nominations in the Viewer’s Choice category and the Best International Act category, further solidifying his status as the self-proclaimed African giant.

Tems, another Grammy winner, closely follows Burna Boy with three nominations, including a nomination in the Best Female R&B/Pop Artist category. Additionally, she shares two nominations with Future and Drake for their collaborative track “wait for you,” which has been recognized in the Best Collaboration and Viewer’s Choice categories.

Two rising stars, Asake and Ayra Starr, have also received well-deserved recognition. Asake’s talent has earned him a nomination in the Viewer’s Choice and Best New International Act categories, while Ayra Starr finds herself competing alongside Burna Boy in the Best International Act category.
