Grammy organisers name Burna Boy biggest artiste in Africa
The Recording Academy, the organisers of Grammy Awards has described Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Burna Boy as the biggest artiste in Africa.
Burna Boy had four nominations for the 2024 Grammy Awards.
While congratulating the singer alongside others, The Grammys noted ‘there is not a bigger star in Afrobeats or even the whole of Africa itself than Burna Boy.
The self-styled African Giant nabbed two consecutive Best Global Album GRAMMY nods for his albums Twice as Tall and African Giant, and he’s also collaborated with global stars such as Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber.
Back in Ghana, the initial excitement and anticipation among Ghanaian music enthusiasts and followers of award winning Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy was unfortunately turned into a heap of disappointment as the Recording Academy unveiled its nomination list on Friday.( Related article: Ghana's Stonebwoy let off Grammys list, Davido, others make it big)
Stonebwoy missed out on a coveted spot in the Grammy Awards nominations for his latest album, "5th Dimension."
Despite high hopes and positive expectation surrounding Stonebwoy's potential historic nomination at this year's Grammys, it appears that the dream will have to wait for now.
The list, however, features some prominent names on the African music scene. Notable mentions include Nigerian superstars Davido, Asake, Arya Starr and Olamide and South African breakout artiste Tyla, who gained widespread attention with her viral single, "Water."
