Another big win for the Nigerian music industry as the international music sensation, Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, is set to perform at the 2024 Grammy Awards.
The widely acclaimed ‘African Giant’ has been confirmed as one of the performers for the most prestigious and significant awards in the music industry worldwide.
Just last week, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, and Dua Lipa were unveiled as the first performers for the 2024 Grammy Awards.
The telecast, set to be hosted by Trevor Noah, will be broadcast on CBS and available for streaming on Paramount Plus.
Burna Boy secured not just one but four Grammy nominations this year: Best Global Music Album (for “I Told Them…”), Best African Music Performance (“City Boys”), Best Global Music Performance (“Alone”), and Best Melodic Rap Performance (“Sittin’ On Top of the World”).
The Nigerian superstar previously secured a Grammy win at the 63rd Grammys in 2021, claiming the Best Global Music Album for “Twice As Tall.”
In other news, Burna Boy has achieved another milestone in his ever growing career, emerging as the most-streamed artiste in Sub-Saharan Africa on YouTube.
