Burna Boy is currently trending on Twitter and the reason is not far fetched. The Ye singer, yesterday, lost out to Beninese music legend, Angelique Kidjo, at the Grammy. Although Burna failed to pick the award, Angelique Kidjo, dedicated her win to him. Nigerians were almost certain that the Grammy would be theirs this time around but that did not happen.
NaijaBasic compiled the list of various celebrities that rooted
for Burna to win ahead of the d-day.
You saw that nomination list, you knew yourself that it's competitive and he would probably not win.— Online bestie (@the_lopetee) January 27, 2020
But you went ahead shouting "Burna will win" the same way you shout "I will become a millionaire" without working towards it.
Now you are gonna act like he was cheated, clowns!
Yesterday everyone was saying Burna is going to win. Today you guys are now saying it was obvious he wasn’t going to win. I don’t care about Burna or Grammy but the way you guys think on this app is very disgusting and hypocritical.— Oluwafunmilayo🇳🇬 (@FunmiKolz) January 27, 2020
The most annoying people on earth today are those that will say “I am surprised you all thought Burna would win. Angelique Kidjo is a legend.” Of course she is but the #GRAMMYs is not about judging legend status. If it was, Fela will win it with every album. Knack dem something!— Dr. Joe Abah (@DrJoeAbah) January 27, 2020
Burna Boy was not cheated. Angelique Kidjo is a legend in music & Africa as a whole. The 62nd Grammy is Burma’s first nomination, but Kidjo’s 10th... Burna is one of our own but let’s give respect to whoever deserves it.— Series Abíọ́dún (@Engr_Series) January 27, 2020
Burna boy didn’t win, all the tweets that I’ve drafted will na go to waste??💔💔#GRAMMYs— Lamarr ❁ (@Kinglamarr___) January 26, 2020
Going out now to buy 2 bottles of Bardar XO to celebrate remotely with Burna in grand style. Just getting nominated is huge, when he wins, it's going to be completely bonkers!!!— Four-eyed Edo boy™ (@Alex_Houseof308) January 26, 2020
Mandem need quality liquor to detty eye small. This N8,400 na our offering for Oluwa Burna standom
Whoever feels Burna Boy was cheated out should have their brain checked. Even burna’s most famous song is a sample off Angelique Kidjo grammy-winning album. We should stay guided.— Ladman Chass (@LadmanChass) January 27, 2020
Awww Angelique Kidjo dedicated the award to Burna Boy.— Wole (@Kingwole) January 26, 2020
Grammy didn’t cheat Burna Boy. Angélique is not your mate. I’ve heard 2 songs off the Celia album and they were straight fire. Angélique Kidjo is not Burna Boy’s mate. Burna boy is still a great artist. Africa won. Now go to work, today is Monday.— Local Calabar Girl 🌱 (@seukpong) January 27, 2020
Angélique Kidjo is an icon. She has been doing this music thing years before I was born and trust me, I’m older than 60% of y’all on this app. Don’t ever disrespect her because you think Burna should’ve won. Angélique winning takes nothing away from Burna, he’s phenomenal.— Mazi Olisaemeka C. ™ (@OlisaOsega) January 27, 2020
So I decided to listen to few tracks from Angelique Kidjo’s Album & I must say Burna Boy is really an African Giant to be nominated alongside that woman.— Tife🌚 (@Tife_fabunmi) January 27, 2020
Burna still gat more than enough time to put in more effort inorder to do better. He’s capable, he’s a winner too. #GRAMMYs
