Last week, Nigeria’s name reverberated all over the world again, this time not for opaque-minded leadership, corruption, banditry, Boko Haram or Fulani herdsmen’s violence. In far away Los Angeles, at the 63rd annual Grammy awards, Burna Boy, real name Damini Ogulu, won the Best Global Music Album category with his Twice as Tall track, while Wizkid won the Best Video for his song with Beyonce.

Burna Boy won a Grammy for the Best World Music Album with his latest album: “Twice as Tall,” released in August 2020, defeating other strong contenders, including Antibalas, Bebel Gilberto, Anoushka Shankar and Tianariwen.

Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Thursday denied that the state government was behind the popular musical concert that featured pop star Wizkid in Ilorin, adding however that the event was a welcome development and could be a springboard to promote entertainment and get local talents hooked to other talents from outside the state.
