Burna Boy’s grandfather, Benson Idonije is very sure that his grandson will win a Grammy award next year.
In a recent with The Punch, Benson said Burna is a bigger artiste compared to other music acts nominated in the Best World Music category at the 2020 Grammys.
He added that he absolutely loves his music.
His words, “I think Burna will win his category because his music is stronger (than the music of others) and his image is bigger. I think that the whole trajectory is leading to him winning the Grammy. I am very optimistic.”
“I listen to his music and approve it and at the beginning, I was involved in organising live music for him. When he records, I go to listen to what he does. In recent times, he is more abroad than in Nigeria but all the same, he sends them down; I listen and make comments.”
Burna Boy joins King Sunny Ade, Femi Kuti, and Seun Kuti as top Nigerian musicians that have been nominated in the Best World Music category. The 28-year-old singer was nominated alongside Angelique Kidjo, Altin Gün, Bokanté & Metropole Orkest, and Nathalie Joachim and Spektral Quartets.
Do you think he will be the first Nigerian to do it?
