The guy broke into US market, Mainstream. Even wizkid had to break into UK market first. The impact Burna made this year, he was clearly robbed. But am I surprised? Grammies just does what Grammies likes, not what’s legit. Mtsew. Congrats to angelic kidjo by the way.

Angelique Kidjoe winning the Grammy as opposed to Burna Boy sits very fine with me. That woman is a beast. Love that she recognized him in her speech though

Burna is no doubt an African Giant, not easy to win, when nominated alongside your mentor and a legend of Africa. Burna keep the flag flying, we coming back to win the Grammys. Anticipate the Coming of the African Giant II 🦍🦍🦍
