Burna Boy is set to perform at the Grammy 2021
The African giant Burna Boy will be performing at the 2021 Grammy pre-show which will be live-streamed on GRAMMY.com at 3 p.m. EST on March 14.
The premiere ceremony will be hosted by Jhene Aiko. It will kick off with an ensemble of previous Grammy nominees including Gregory Porter, Afro-Peruvian Jazz Orchestra, Regina Carter, and Kamasi Washington performing “Mercy, Mercy Me (The Ecology)” in tribute to the late legend Marvin Gaye.
Burna Boy was nominated at the 2021 Grammy Awards in the Best Global Music Category alongside Tuareg desert rock group Tinariwen, NYC afrobeat outfit Antibalas, Brazilian-American Bebel Gilberto, and British-Indian sitar player Anoushka Shankar. Previously known as the international category of Best World Music Album, the category was renamed to “make it more modern and inclusive.”
This is Burna Boy’s second Grammy nomination after losing to the iconic Angelique Kidjo during the last ceremony. Considering the praise Twice as Tall has received, we hope this is the year he takes the award home.
Congratulations Oluwaburna, we hope you finally bring the award home.
So guys, do tell us what you think about Burna boy actually winning the award this year.
Let’s hear from you.
