Grammy Awards: Burna Boy nominated for third consecutive year

Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has been nominated for the prestigious Grammy Awards for the third time in a row.

The Recording Academy revealed the nominations for the 2022 Grammy Awards in a live stream on Tuesday.

‘Do Yourself’, a song the African Giant made with music legend Angelique Kidjo, was nominated for Best Global Music Performance. The artist also featured on Justin Beiber’s
Justice (Triple Chucks Deluxe) album, which was nominated for Album of the Year.

Burna Boy was first nominated for the award two years ago in the Global Music Award category with his album, African Giant, but lost out to Angelique Kidjo.

However, the singer was nominated in the same category in 2021 with his album, Twice As Tall, and this time he clinched the award.

Meanwhile, Nigerian superstar singer, Wizkid, was nominated in the ‘Best Global Music Performance’ category for ‘Essence’ — his collaborative song with Tems.

In July, ‘Essence’ became the first Nigerian song to crack the highly coveted music chart and the third in Africa.

The 2022 Grammys’ main event will air on January 31, 2022, at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT on the CBS Television Network. The award show would also be available to stream live and on-demand on Paramount+.
