History making, Burna Boy electric set at Grammys 2024

Burna Boy, the Nigerian Afro-fusion artist, has had a remarkable journey at the Grammy Awards. In 2020, he was nominated for the first time in the “Best World Music Album” category for his album African Giant. Although he didn’t win, his nomination was a significant achievement for the African music scene.

Fast forward to 2024, Burna Boy has become a Grammy winner and a household name in the global music industry. He won the “Best Global Music Album” award for his album Twice As Tall in 2021, and now he’s back at the Grammys, not just as a nominee, but also as a performer.

At the 2024 Grammy Awards, Burna Boy delivered an electrifying performance that showcased his unique blend of Afrobeat, dancehall, and hip-hop. The performance was a testament to his talent and the growing recognition of African music on the world stage.

Burna Boy performed with Brandy and 21 Savage. The trio took the stage to perform “Sittin’ On Top Of The World,” which samples Brandy’s 1998 hit “Top Of The World.” This collaboration was a historic moment for all three artists, as it marked 21 Savage’s Grammy performance debut and a return to the Grammy stage for Brandy after almost 20 years.
