Being the first Afro-fusion performer on the esteemed Grammy stage, Burna Boy made history in 2024.

Burna Boy has distinguished himself within the genre by referring to his music as Afro-fusion, even though he is primarily associated with Afrobeats. Burna Boy honoured his Nigerian roots with a performance that featured spirited dancers and a green-clad backing band. Burna Boy looked confident and proud in his red outfit.

During his thrilling performance, R&B legend Brandy and rapper 21 Savage made guest appearances as Burna Boy skillfully switched between hits like “City Boys” and “Sittin’ On Top of the World.” The performance gained depth from Brandy’s velvety vocals and 21 Savage’s fiery verse, which was the latter’s Grammy debut. Beyond his performance, Burna Boy is the most nominated African artist for the 2024 Grammy Awards. He has four nominations total, including Best Global Music Album and Best African Music Performance for his critically acclaimed album “I Told Them” and its hit single “City Boys.”

Regretfully, Burna did not win any of the four nominations.
