Burna Boy, Nigerian singer, could not contain his happiness after he was declared the winner of his category at the 2021 Grammys for ‘Twice As Tall,’ his last year’s album.
The ‘Ye’ singer won the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category to clinch his first-ever Grammy at the award ceremony held in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
In his reaction, the ‘African Giant’ singer described the feat as a “big win” for Africans across the globe, noting that such has demonstrated that they can also achieve their dreams.
“This is a big win for my generation of Africans all over the world. This should also be a lesson to every African out there that no matter where you are, no matter what you will like to do, you can achieve it. Look at me now, Grammy award-winning Burna Boy,” he said.

This year’s Grammy win comes against the backdrop of his loss at the 2020 edition of the awards.
He was nominated in the ‘Best World Music Album’ category at the 62nd Grammy. But his expectations and that of many Nigerians were dashed as he lost the category to Angelique Kidjo, Beninese singer-songwriter.
Burna Boy rose to the spotlight in 2012 after he released ‘Like to Party’, a hit track off ‘L.I.F.E’, his debut album.
He has since continued to pull the strings in the global music landscape with several beautiful projects, collaborations as well as recognition.
