Billboard ranks Burna Boy’s 2024 Grammy Awards performance sixth


Grammy-winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, debut at the Grammy 2024, has been ranked No. billboard.

Burna Boy’s first Afrobeats performance at the Grammys was spectacular.

So, among all the performances throughout the 2024 Grammys, Burna’s ranked #6.

He sang “Sittin’ on Top of the World” alongside Brandy and 21 Savage.

During his production he put an impressive performance with an infectious energy and charisma.

Billboard in a statement, said, “For the first Afrobeats performance at the Grammys, Burna Boy pulled out all the stops. Backed by Brandy’s gorgeous vocals and 21 Savage’s detached, confident cool, Burna sang “Sittin’ on Top of the World” and demonstrated that is precisely where he belongs.

“The lush, expansive stage — depicting a residential city block – and clever costume design (the color red tied all three performers together, despise their disparate styles) brought to mind an MGM golden era musical — and truthfully, the Nigerian star’s infectious energy and easy charm wouldn’t seem out of place in a Hollywood musical,” Billboard wrote.

However, South African singer Tyla stole the show as she secured a triumphant win at the 2024 Grammy Awards, clinching the Best African Music Performance award on Sunday.

The 22-year-old outshone notable Nigerian contenders, including Davido, Asake, and Burna Boy.

Tyla’s chart-topping track ‘Water’ emerged victorious over songs by Davido, Asake, Burna Boy, and Ayra Starr.

Notably, ‘Water’ achieved global success, ranking in the top 10 across 16 countries, including the UK and the US.

The prestigious accolade was bestowed upon Tyla during the 66th Grammy Award Premiere Ceremony at the Peacock Theatre in Los Angeles, the United States of America.
