Popular Nigerian singer Burna Boy has bagged his second Grammy nomination with his “Twice As Tall” album at the 2021 Grammy nominations.
The singer was nominated under the World Music Album alongside other entertainers like Antibalas, Bebel Gilberto, Anoushka Shankar, and Tinariwen. This is the second year in a row that the singer is getting a nomination in this category.
To be eligible for the 2021 awards, albums and songs must have been released between Sept. 1, 2019, and Aug. 31, 2020, which doesn’t give Davido a chance with his recent top-notch album “A Better Time” since it was launched in November 2020.
