It added that the event will be hosted by Jhené Aiko, a three-time Grammy nominee.

Burna Boy is up for the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category for ‘Twice As Tall’, his 2020 album, at the forthcoming edition of the awards.

This makes it the second Grammy nomination for the music star.

 

He was nominated in the ‘Best World Music Album’ category at the 62nd Grammy for his ‘African Giant‘ album but lost to Angelique Kidjo, Beninese singer-songwriter.

This year’s edition of the awards was earlier scheduled for January but was postponed amid concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

It will kick off with a star-studded tribute performance to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Marvin Gaye, late American music legend.
