In a recent development that will further fuel the ongoing debate among fans of Davido, Wizkid, and Burna Boy, The Recording Academy, the esteemed organizers of the Grammy Awards, have officially recognized Burna Boy as the most prominent artist in Africa.
Burna Boy has garnered an impressive four nominations for the upcoming 2024 Grammy Awards. The Grammys, while extending their congratulations to Burna Boy and other artists, have explicitly stated that there is no bigger star in the realm of Afrobeats or even across the entire African continent than Burna Boy.
This acknowledgement from the Grammys is a testament to Burna Boy’s exceptional talent and influence. With back-to-back nominations for Best Global Album for his remarkable works, “Twice as Tall” and “African Giant,” Burna Boy has solidified his position as a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
Furthermore, his collaborations with renowned global artists like Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber have further elevated his status on the international stage.
While this recognition by the Grammys undoubtedly amplifies Burna Boy’s reputation in Nigeria, it is expected to resonate with music enthusiasts in Ghana as well. It may prompt Ghanaian fans to reflect on their own artists and question whether they have done enough to attain similar global recognition.
The Recording Academy recently announced the date for the 2024 GRAMMYs, which will be held on Sunday, February 4th at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
The 2024 GRAMMYs, also known as the 66th GRAMMY Awards, will be broadcasted live on the CBS Television Network from 8:00 PM to 11:30 PM ET (5:00 PM to 8:30 PM PT). Additionally, the event will be available for streaming on Paramount+ for both live viewing and on-demand access for Paramount+ subscribers with SHOWTIME, or on-demand for Paramount+ Essential subscribers starting the day after the special airs.
Excitingly, the 2024 GRAMMYs will introduce three new categories: Best African Music Performance, Best Alternative Jazz Album, and Best Pop Dance Recording. These groundbreaking additions are part of a broader series of updates and revisions that will be implemented immediately at the 2024 GRAMMYs. The aim of these changes, as stated by Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr., is to enhance the fairness, transparency, and accuracy of the GRAMMY Awards process.
