Davido and Burna Boy, the Nigerian singers, have failed to win any of their categories at the 2024 Grammy Awards.


Davido, who is a first-time Grammy nominee, was nominated in three categories — including ‘Best Global Album’ for his latest album, ‘Timeless’.

Others are ‘Best African Performance’ for his song ‘Unavailable’ and ‘Best Global Music Performance’ for his track ‘Feel’.

He, however, lost the ‘Best African Music’ category to Tyla’s ‘Water’, ‘Best Global Music Performance’ to ‘Pashto’ by Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer & Zakir Hussain featuring Rakesh Chaurasia, and ‘Best Global Album’ to Shakti’s ‘The Moment’.


Burna Boy, who was nominated in four categories — including ‘Best Melodic Rap’, ‘’Best Global Music Album’, ‘Best Global Music Performance’ and ‘Best African Music Performance’ — however, lost out in all the categories.

The ‘Twice as Tall’ hitmaker lost the ‘Best African Music’ category to Tyla’s ‘Water’, and ‘Best Global Music Performance’ to ‘Pashto’ by Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer & Zakir Hussain featuring Rakesh Chaurasia.

Shakti’s ‘The Moment’ won the ‘Best Global Album’ category while ‘Best Melodic Rap Performance’ went to Lil Durk’s ‘All My Life’ featuring J Cole.


The 2024 Grammy premiere ceremony kicked off in the early hours of Monday and is being held at the Peacock Theater. It is being broadcast live on live on GRAMMY.com and the Recording Academy’s YouTube channel.
