Musicians in many part of the world have the dream to be recognised beyond the shores of their own country and for their works to be loved worldwide.
The Grammy Awards represents this form of recognition for a number of non-American musicians. It was with great joy that Nigerians received the news of Afro-fusion artiste, Burna Boy, being nominated for the award under the Best World Music Album category.
However, Burna Boy lost the award to legendary African singer, Angelique Kidjo, and it led to a series of mixed reactions on social media.
Popular South African rapper, AKA, also took to social media via his Twitter page to react to Burna Boy’s loss of the Grammy Award.
According to AKA, even a nomination is a huge achievement. He added that Burna Boy is still a champion and he considers him a winner.
