Burna Boy has been dominating headlines since last weekend and although he did not win the Grammy Award, he has won the hearts of many fans across Africa and indeed the world.
The Nigerian Singer had his compatriots solidly behind him prior to the awards night and he received more support even after the results were announced that he did not win.
Highlight of the evening was when the singer whom he lost to, Angelique Kidjo gave a powerful speech while dedicating the award to the ‘Ye’ crooner.
See Their reaction below;
Burna Boy made it to a global stage even though he didn’t win but he won Africa.
Congratulations to Angelique Kidjo who won and dedicated the Award to Burna!

Burna Wins the Grammy or Not! He should be Respected! He’s the first Afrobeat hip hop artist from Nigeria that was nominated because of his work(African Giant), not because of a feature/help from a Foreign artist!#GRAMMYs
