Burna is a fellow Rivers Man but you'll never see him come out straight to boast or be proud of his state of origin


He will never win a Grammy

A well deserved win to Kidjo.
The content of her songs are out of this world. She is a mix of Maya Angelou and Miriam Makeba.

Music lovers and genuine content critics like myself would have given up on the credibility and essence of the Grammy Awards if another undeserving artiste had won this.

Sentiments aside, Nigeria is yet to replicate another Fela Kuti in the global music sphere.

Fela is the only Nigerian deserving of a Grammy.
Because music is not about dancesteps or groupie trends but about a movement, a message, reawakening a consciousness and yet the melody from real musical instruments.
This is a reality lost on today's Nigerian artistes aside from Asá who still lacks in consistency.

As an African act, till your music can be accepted by Pastors, Imams, Youths, elders, global leaders, United Nations and illiterates, then you stand a chance of being an African Album or winning a foreign award in Music.

Nigeria and Nigerians must understand that club bangers do not translate to foreign awards in global music.

You have spoken with wisdom.

Are you minding Nigerians? The majority of people supporting Burna Boy did so based on sentiments, something which the selecting board is mercifully free from.

I know a lot of people will strongly disagree but Burna still has a long way to go before he can win an award as prestigious as a Grammy. As I mentioned previously on another thread, Angelique is light years ahead of Burna Boy.

Anyway, getting a nomination in the first place is a big deal so he may well be on his way.

Burna Boy stood no chance the moment he was paired with Kidjo. There is something about her and her songs that are not just deep hut philosophical. But then, that isn't the essence of the category. The Grammy album of the year puts certain factors into account and that includes technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales, chart position, or critical reception.

If it were to be by the latter, Burna might have won because the African Giant album grossed quite well and had impressive reviews from crazy critics. Congratulations to Mama Kidjo.

Greatness begets greatness

I remember far back in 2013 when Angelique kidjo featured Asa in her melodious album 'Eva' which celebrated the pride, strength, and smile that masks everyday troubles faced by African women.

The album had a wide array of African languages, Fon, Yoruba, Goun, Mina etc


Asa also is doing greatly in her own way and she still very much portrays the Yoruba culture to France and the world. Her recent Album 'Lucid' has a good blend of fine sounds that carries messages.
'Happy People' which celebrates the resilient nature of Nigerian women irrespective of odds is one of my favorite.


Congratulations to both Angelique and Burna boy, they both are African giants.

This is wrong. Beyoncé, Eminem, MJ's 'Thriller', Taylor Swift's '1989', and even Jay Z have all won the Grammy Album of the year award.

Most of the songs on their albums are club bangers, and widely accepted by younger generations. I can't imagine any of Jay Z's, and Eminem songs that will will be accepted by religious leaders.

Most educated folks don't even understand Eminem's raps because he is always dissing the world and lacing his materials with double and triple entendres.

The category is much more beyond acceptability and the class or category of people your album resonate with. Kidjo will still return and win another next year as always.

Modified

To those quoting and 'correcting' me about Beyoncé, Em, Jay Z et al, about not winning the world album of the year. NOTE THST I DIDN'T MENTION THE WORLD ALBUM OF THE YEAR BUT ALBUM OF THE YEAR. The criteria remains the same for both while the reach is the only difference.

I cited them as winners of similar categories with club bangers as a response to the fellow who stated that your album must appeal to clerics, religious bodies and the UN to win the category.
