A few days ago, Burna Boy made history again— he reportedly becomes the first-ever Nigerian to win a Grammy Plaque for a work he has done himself.
The award was for his album Twice as Tall.
The recognition and for the fact that he actually had the award in his hand garnered him the attention he always enjoys. He has been trending since with congratulations and accolades pouring in.
