Grammy Award Burna boy

Nigerian singer Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, known professionally as Burna Boy, has finally received his Grammy Award Plague.

Kemifilani News recall that the Nigerian Afrobeat star won the Best Global Music Album category at the 63rd Grammy Awards with his Twice As Tall album.

The Grammys described Twice As Tall as “a masterclass in the vibe and hustle that have made Burna Boy an international musical force”.

After receiving the plague, the self-acclaimed African giant, in a post shared on his Instagram page, said his parents prayed for excellent children and not houses or cars.

He further bragged about how his sister graduated with a first-class degree in Finacee and others with distinction in Engineering.

While appreciating God for the huge achievement, Burna Boy said, he’s a product of sacrifice. Sharing photos of the plague, he wrote:

Early Morning deliveries from across the pond! My parents prayed for excellent children, not houses, cars or “things”. They asked my sisters for stellar degrees; one got a first class in Finance, the other got a Distinction in Engineering. They asked me for a Grammy, and here we are. I am a product of sacrifice! Thank God and thank you all again!
