Burna Boy To Perform At The Virtual 63rd Grammys

by Duke Magazine

Nigerian Afropop sensation, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy will be performing alongside other artists like Lido Pimienta, Poppy, Rufus Wainwright and many more. 

The virtual event is slated to hold on March 14. However, the Premiere Ceremony will kick off with a huge ensemble of previous Grammy nominees (including Gregory Porter, Afro-Peruvian Jazz Orchestra, Regina Carter, and Kamasi Washington) performing Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy, Mercy Me (The Ecology)” in tribute to the late legend.

With Jhené Aiko sets to host the big event, Talking Heads, Salt-N-Pepa, Selena, Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, and more would receive Lifetime Achievement Grammys.

Burna Boy is being nominated at the 2021 Grammy Awards in the Best Global Music Category alongside Tuareg desert rock group Tinariwen, NYC afrobeat outfit Antibalas, Brazilian-American Bebel Gilberto, and British-Indian star player Anoushka Shankar. Previously known as the international category of Best World Music Album, the category was recently renamed to “make it more modern and inclusive.”

This is Burna Boy’s second Grammy nomination after losing to the iconic Angelique Kidjo during the last ceremony. Considering the waves his “Twice as Tall” album has been, this could just be the best time for the “Way Too Big” to smile home with a Grammy award.
