FULL LIST: Burna Boy Nominated For 2021 BRIT Awards — After Grammy Win

by Adeoya Femi

Burna Boy, Nigerian singer, has been nominated for the 2021 BRIT Awards.

Organisers of the award — sometimes referred to as the British version of the Grammys — unveiled the nominees today.

The ‘Ye’ crooner was nominated for the ‘International Male Solo Artist’ category alongside The Weeknd, Bruce Springsteen, Childish Gambino and Tame Impala.

Other categories of the award include ‘Mastercard Album of the Year,’ ‘Song of the Year,’ ‘Best New Artist,’ ‘Male Solo Artist,’ ‘Female Solo Artist,’ ‘Best Group,’ ‘International Female,’ and ‘Rising Star.’

This year’s edition of the award ceremony is billed to hold on May 11 after the initial delay caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

This is the second consecutive time the musician will be nominated for BRIT Award.

He was nominated for the same category last year for ‘African Giant’, his 2019 album, but lost to Tyler The Creator, American singer-songwriter.

The nomination further stretches what has been an impressive run for Burna Boy.

It also comes about two weeks after ‘Twice as Tall’, his 2020 album, snagged the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category at the 2021 Grammy Awards.
