Angelique Kidjo Beats Burna Boy To Win The Grammy

Angelique Kidjo takes home Best World Music Album at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards.

Angelique Kidjo has won Best World Music Album for Celia at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards. This marks her fourth win in the category and fourth GRAMMY win overall.

Angelique Kidjo beat out fellow nominees Altin Gün (Gece), Bokanté & Metropole Orkest Conducted By Jules Buckley (What Heat), Burna Boy (African Giant) and Nathalie Joachim With Spektral Quartet (Fanm D’Ayiti).

Many had, however, hoped that the new face of Afrobeats – Burna Boy would win the category.

If he had won, it would have been Nigeria’s second win at the Grammys.
