ENT: Burna Boy’s ‘Twice As Tall’ nominated for 2021 Grammys




ENT - ‘Twice As Tall‘, a 2020 album by Damini Ogulu, a Nigerian Afro-fusion singer better known as Burna Boy, has been nominated for the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category of the 2021 Grammys.

The nominees were announced on Tuesday during an hour-long live stream featuring Harvey Mason Jr., the chairman and interim president/CEO of the Recording Academy, a learned academy of music professionals.

According to TheCable, ‘Twice As Tall’ will be competing against Antibalas’s ‘FU Chronicles’, Bebel Gilberto’s ‘Agora’, and Anoushka Shankar’s ‘Love Letters’ in the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category.

For this year’s edition, Burna Boy, who was nominated in the ‘Best World Music Album’ category for his ‘African Giant‘ album, lost to Angelique Kidjo, a Beninese singer-songwriter.

The ‘Ye’ singer had thereafter disclosed that the title of his next project will be ‘Twice as Tall’ – which suggested he knew better.

“So now I’m ‘Twice as Tall’. That’s the name of my next album, by the way, dropping in July by the grace of the most high,” he had said.

‘Twice As Tall’, the ‘African Giant’ crooner’s fifth album, is executive-produced by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, a US media mogul and rapper, and Bosede Ogulu, Burna Boy’s mother.

Burna Boy rose to prominence in 2012 after releasing ‘Like to Party’, the lead single from his debut album.
