Nigerian singer, Burna Boy has made history as his album “African Giant” wins ‘Best World Album’.
According to reports, the singer won at the just concluded 2020 Edison Awards.
Announcing the Burna boy as the winner for the ‘Best World Album’ award category, the Edison Award jury said;
“The Nigerian Burna Boy is a sensation in world and pop music. His music is unmistakably African, but fits seamlessly into today’s pop music culture. ‘African Giant’ contains a challenging mix of Rap, RnB, Reggae and African pop music and at times recalls the also Nigerian great Fela Kuti.”
This made the musician the first Nigerian to win the award and the third African, after Youssou N’Dour and Angélique Kidjo.
