Nigerian Singer, Burna Boy appears to have established a culture of continuous nominations.

With his album “African Giant,” the Grammy winner received his first Grammy nomination for “Best World Music Category” at the 2020 Grammy Awards.
He was defeated, however, by the renowned Angelique Kidjo, who recognized and dedicated her award to him when she received it.
In the 2021 Grammy Awards, he received another nomination for his album “Twice as Tall” in the category of “Best Global Music Album.”
He was nominated alongside four other artists, including Tinariwen from Mali and Antibalas from the United States, and he won that category, earning him his first Grammy.
The African superstar has been nominated for the Grammy Awards for the third time in a row, this time in the category of “best global music performance” for a song named “Do yourself,” which he co-wrote with Angelique Kidjo.
Burna Boy was also given credit for “Album of the Year” on Justin Bieber’s “Justice” this year.
Recall that in June of this year, he received the BET Award for Best International Act for the third time in a row. Do you think he’ll take home any wins at this year’s Grammys?
