Burna Boy Makes History Once More, Becomes First Nigerian To Win “Best World Album” at Edison Awards – Burna Boy has proven to be the Giant of Africa once again as he wins the best world album at the just concluded Edison Awards 2020.
The “Twice As Tall” hitmaker has won the ‘Best World Album’ award at the 2020 Edison Awards for his African Giant album, making him the first Nigerian to win the award and the third African, after Youssou N’Dour and Angélique Kidjo.
Announcing the self acclaimed Odogwu as the winner for the prestigious award category, the Edison Award jury in his words said:
“The Nigerian Burna Boy is a sensation in world and pop music. His music is unmistakably African, but fits seamlessly into today’s pop music culture. ‘African Giant’ contains a challenging mix of Rap, RnB, Reggae and African pop music and at times recalls the also Nigerian great Fela Kuti.”
