With Burna Boy’s “Grammy Nomination” – Has He Overtaken Wizkid And Davido To Become The Best Artiste Alive In Africa?
The Nigerian music industry witnessed a whale of a time as the Burna Boy clung to a Grammy Nomination with his African Giant album
We can all recall how weighty the arguments about Burna Boy overtaking both Wizkid and
Davido in the music scene both in Nigeria and even Internationally due to huge fan base he controls.
Musically, Award wise, Burna Boy has been consistent than Wiz and Davido combined. Please I can’t argue today
But those that make him now bigger than those (Wizkid & Davido) who has been consistent for more than 9 years and still counting?
However, the longevity of Wizkid and Davido consistency in the music scene has always been the safe harbour for both the Starboy FC and the 30BG family whenever the argument about “Burna Boy’s bigger than Wizkid and Davido” pops up.
You will hear facts like “Wetin Burna Boy don collect wey Wizkid and Davido Collect before?” Truly, there’s no milestone Burna Boy has crossed that Wizkid and Davido haven’t done something like that or bigger before.
BUT NOW, THE NARRATION HAS CHANGED!
Yes, it has!!! Burna Boy now has a Grammy Award Nomination for World Music Album at the 62nd Grammy Award Ceremony.
Only King Sunny Ade, Femi Kuti and Seun Kuti happen to be only Nigerians ever to be in that Nominations before Burna Boy. O Por Yeah?

We all know how prestigious the Grammy Award is to Nigerian artistes, we can fathom how desperate Nigerian artiste wants to bring home the Grammy Award, a course many soldiers embarking on the journey has fallen. But Burna Boy is on verge of making it happen to the Genre (Afrobeats).
HOW HE OVERTOOK WIZKID & DAVIDO
Perhaps, Wizkid and Davido has always been the favourite one to bring home the Grammy for us, after the pacesetters, 9ice, 2Baba and
D’Banj failed us, then we took the belief to Wizkid and Davido, but see us today, the forsaken Burna Boy is now making us proud and taking Afrobeats to the dreamland.
With this latest achievement of Burna Boy getting a Grammy Nomination, I believe he now has a stronger claim to the throne of Afrobeat in Nigeria ahead of Wizkid and Davido.
However, you might have a different view, and we will hear from you too.
