Burna Boy’s Grandfather Has What It Takes To Bring Home The Grammy Award

Burna Boy’s grandfather, Benson Idonije has revealed why his grandson should take home the Grammy for Best World Music Category in 2020.

In a recent interview with Punch, his grandfather who served as a manager to Afrobeat legend, Fela Kuti, was quite optimistic about his grandson’s win at the Grammys. According to him, the “African Giant” singer is way bigger than the other artistes nominated alongside him. He also revealed that he makes sure to listen to his songs before they are released and is very optimistic about his win.

“I think Burna will win his category because his music is stronger (than the music of others) and his image is bigger. I think that the whole trajectory is leading to him winning the Grammy. I am very optimistic. I listen to his music and approve it and at the beginning, I was involved in organising live music for him.

When he records, I go to listen to what he does. In recent times, he is more abroad than in Nigeria but all the same, he sends them down; I listen and make comments”.

It is worthy to note that Burna Boy has joined King Sunny Ade, Femi Kuti, and Seun Kuti as top Nigerian musicians that have been nominated in the Best World Music category. The 28-year-old singer was nominated alongside Angelique Kidjo, Altin Gün, Bokanté & Metropole Orkest, and Nathalie Joachim and Spektral Quartets.
