‘African Giant,’ an album by Damini Ogulu, Nigeria’s Afrofusion singer better known as Burna Boy, has been nominated for the 2020 BRIT Awards — sometimes referred to as the British version of the Grammys.
The award ceremony is expected to hold on February 18.
Burna Boy was nominated for the ‘International Male’ category alongside Bruce Springsteen, Dermot Kennedy, Post Malone and Tyler, the Creator.
