Nigerian hip-hop artistes have really proved their worth at the Grammy Award 2021 as the duo Stars Wizkid and Burna Boy emerged winners at the 2021 edition.
While Burna Boy’s ‘Twice As Tall’, his last year’s project, fetched him the ‘Best Global Music Album’ Category, Wizkid won his first-ever Grammy award for his role in ‘Brown Skin Girl’, a 2019 song by Beyonce.
‘Brown Skin Girl’ was nominated for the category alongside ‘Life Is Good’, a song by Future featuring Drake, ‘Lockdown’ by Anderson Park, ‘Adore You’ by Harry Styles and ‘Goliath’ by Woodkid.
Trevor Noah, South African US-based comedian, hosted the show from the Los Angeles Convention Center.
It was originally scheduled to take place in January but was postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic.
