A Nigerian therapist, Oyinkansola Alabi, said that although she loves Burna Boy’s diligence;, she didn’t want him to win the much-coveted award as she was ”scared of his attitude towards fame and money.”
“Even though I love his diligence, I really didn’t want him to win. I thought the Grammy award would ruin him. Further, I was scared of his attitude towards fame and money.
”I, however, think that his real award is the global recognition and the fact that he contested with a legend.
”So congratulations, Oluwaburna, may God increase your greatness and may you find him.” Ms Alabi wrote.
The 62nd Grammy Awards show which lasted for almost four hours long, kicked off with a solemn acappella tribute to late NBA legend Kobe Bryant by Boys II Men.
Grammy host Alicia Keys also summed up the year with a song; while Lil Nas X and BTS rotated the venue with their renditions of “Old Town Road”.
Demi Lovato performed her song, “Anyone” written four days before her 2018 overdose for the first time and it was quite emotional while a Nipsey Hussle tribute was done by John Legend, DJ Khaled, Meek Mill, YG and others.
Billie Eilish went home as the biggest winners of the night as she swept this year’s top four categories (Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year, and Best New Artist), making her only the second artist in history to do so.
