Barely a month after his Grammy win, Nigeria’s Afro-fusion artiste, Burna Boy, has been nominated for the 2021 BRIT Awards.
The singer was nominated for the ‘International Male Solo Artist’ category alongside veteran American icon, Bruce Springsteen; Canadian Singer, The Weeknd; Childish Gambino and Tame Impala.
Burna Boy lost to ‘Tyler, the creator’ when he was nominated in the same category in 2020.
The Grammy winner is a two-time recipient of BET’s Best International Act award and MTV Europe Music Award’s Best African Act.
After it was postponed by three months, the winners of the 2021 awards will be announced at a ceremony on May 11 at London’s O2 Arena, though it has not been clearly stated what form the ceremony due to COVID-19 restrictions.
