Burna Boy set to become first African artiste to perform at Grammys, as 66th edition holds


Nigerian Afro-fusion superstar, Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, is set to perform at the 66th Grammys slated to take place on February 4, 2024 in Los Angeles.

Burna Boy would join other top artists to perform at the 66th Grammys.

The multi-talented artiste would be the first African act to grace the enigmatic stage of the Grammys with his dazzling rendition.

Other artistes like American singer Luke Combs and hip-hop star Travis Scott, will also be performing, joining Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, and Olivia Rodrigo, who were previously announced.

Meanwhile, a list of African artistes who had received the coveted Grammy Award since the 1960s was recently revealed by organisers.

This came ahead of the 66th Grammy Awards.
The list, which featured prominent accomplishments in global music recognition, notably excluded Nigerian singers, Wizkid and Tems.

This was somewhat surprising to their fans, considering that the two Nigerian stars were once featured in songs that bagged the prestigious recognition.

The late South African singer, Miriam Makeba, was the first on the list as the first African to win a Grammy.
The Nigerian/British pop sensation Sade also made it to the list.

Burna Boy is the most recent and last Nigerian musician to achieve the feat so far.
