Nigerian music superstar, Damini Ogulu, alias Burna Boy has bagged a nomination at the 2021 Brit Awards in the category of International Male Solo Artist.
This nomination comes shortly after the the ‘Odogwu’ crooner won the category of Best Global Album at the recently-concluded 63rd Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony. Dua Lipa, J Hus and Cardi B are also among the acts nominated for the BRIT Awards 2021.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the award event was postponed back three months from its usual February date, which will instead take place on May 11 at London’s O2 Arena.
Recall, Burna Boy was also honored in his native state of origin, Rivers State by the current governor of the state, Nyesom Wike with a homecoming ceremony. The singer was gifted a plot of land in Old GRA, Port Harcourt and millions of Naira for the honor had he brought to the state.
The Afrobeat star was also nominated for the same category in 2020.
