Nigeria’s artist Burna Boy popularly knows as African Giant recently lost the Grammy awards to the Beninese singer-songwriter Angelique Kidjo. The two artists were nominated in the Best World Music Album category but Burna Boy eventually lost to her.
In Angelique Kidjo‘s acceptance speech, she dedicated the award to Burna Boy.
“This is for Burna Boy. He is among those young artists who came from Africa who are changing the way our continent is perceived, and the way African music has been the bedrock for every type of music,” she said praising the Nigerian superstar.
However, the news of Burna Boy‘s loss seems to sit well with South Africans who have taken to social media to mock the artist. The artist became South Africans’ enemy when he threatened to beat up SA rapper AKA while perceiving the latter’s tweet as Xenophobic.
