A few weeks ago, the Recording Academy announced the category formerly known as ‘Best World Music Album’ would become ‘Best Global Music Album.’ Burna Boy lost to Kidjo when the category was known as ‘Best World Music Album.’

If Burna Boy wins, he will become Nigeria’s first Grammy winner since Sikiru Adepoju won with Planet Drum over 10 years ago. Beyonce’s video for ‘Brown Skin Girl’ got a nod for Best Music Video, but it’s unclear if that concerns Wizkid who is a featured act on the song alongside Blue Ivy Carter, Beyonce’s daughter, and Saint jHN.
