Burna Boy is constantly proving that he has earned the name African giant as he puts African music on the world map once again.
The singer’s album ‘African Giant’ has won best world album at the 2020 Edison awards making him the first Nigerian to win the award and the third African, after Youssou N’Dour and Angélique Kidjo.
Here’s what the jury said about the album and their decision to award Burna Boy: “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.”
