Damini Ogulu, Afrofusion sensation better known as Burna Boy, has lost out in his category to Angelique Kidjo, a Beninese singer-songwriter, at the 2020 Grammys.
She was announced the winner of the ‘Best World Music Album’ category at the the 62nd Grammy awards, held at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, in the early hours of Monday.
Kidjo, who secured the win with her project titled ‘Celia’, also gave a shoutout to the ‘African Giant’ crooner while making her speech.
