It’s so glaring how Burna Boy has been chasing the Grammy Award intentionally in the past few years before he got it this year.
In other to win the Grammy Award, he needed to change the existing narrative of African Music space and position himself as the best and biggest Afro-beat act.
To do that, Burna Boy embarked on a mission to produce “African Giant” album which housed a good number of songs themed on socio-political events in Africa.
“Äfrican Giant” album achieved its aim and got nominated for Grammys in 2020 but he lost to Angelique Kidjo who later dedicated the award to Burna Boy.
Like a brilliant student who fails a course the first time, he will pass the second time because he already has a wealth of experience from the first failure.
This was the case for Burna Boy after he lost Grammys the first time. According to him, Angelique Kidjo taught him everything he knows about Grammys and he is now “Twice As Tall“.
Burna Boy took a second shot at Grammys with an album named “Twice As Tall“. The album name positioned Burna Boy as twice bigger than any other artistes in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
Now that Burna Boy finally won Grammys on the second attempt, his next music project will surely be a very big one right from the name he is going to give the project to some of the songs and collaborations he will have on it.
Considering the sequence of album names Burna Boy has been using, from “African Giant” to “Twice As Tall“, imagine the name he will give his next album as a Grammy winner.
Can you take a guess?
