Congratulations to all the Grammy winners! The 63rd edition of the yearly internationally recognized music festival dubbed, Grammy Awards was spectacular.
The monumental music event hosted by South African comedian Trevor Noah was held in Los Angeles Conversion Centre in Los Angeles on Sunday March 14, 2021 with no audience.
Despite the absence of the usual most notable moments in the previous years, which saw huge number of music lovers and entertainers gracing the occasion and with red carpet sessions to reflect on various fashion sense and performances to audience, the night of music celebration was historic even in the era of the deadly pandemic, Covid 19.
It was also a night of celebration for Africans because, some African afrobeat artists Like Burna Boy and Wizkid hailing from Nigeria were able to put smiles on the faces of Africans as they bagged home awards from a tight and impressive category.
Burna Boy, who goes by the real name Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu Rex won the award for the Best Global Music Album category with his “Twice as Tall” album.
Twice as Tall was released in August 2020 and it features other amazing African talents like, Stormzy, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Youssou N’Dour, Naughty by Nature, and Sauti Sol. Last year, for the same award category, burna boy lost to Angélique Kijo.
Wizkid, whose real name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, also won the award category for Best Music Video alongside with Beyoncé and Blue Ivy for Beyoncé’s Brown Skin Girl, from Lion King: The Gift album.
