His album, ‘Twice as Tall’ won the award over records by Antibalas (FU Chronicles), Bebel Gilberto (Agora), Anoushka Shankar (Love Letters), and Tinariwen (Amadjar). The win marks Burna Boy’s first Grammy Award after being nominated last year.

Reacting to his win, the musician in a video via his Instagram story said his joy knew no bounds.

He further advised all young and upcoming artists to always believe in their hustle no matter where they are coming from.

“To every African out there no matter who you are no matter what you do just believe in yourself.

“Always believe you can achieve it no matter where you are from.

“Look at me now Grammy awards winner. I’m so happy my whole family is here. If I can do it anyone can,” he said
