Burna Boy, a well-known Afrobeats musician, proposes that the Recording Academy create the new Grammy category for “Best African Music Performance” in his honor.
The well-known African musician admitted feeling responsible for the new African Music category’s creation in the Grammy awards.
He revealed this in a current interview with the Los Angeles Times. Burna Boy questioned whether the Recording Academy’s newly created category would hold the same prestige as the others.
“I do feel somewhat responsible for the new ‘Best African Music Performance’ category, which is nice. At the same time, what is it really? Is it a consolation category? Will it hold as much prestige? I’m waiting to see.”
