Nigerian singer, songwriter, rapper and dancer, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, has been confirmed to perform at the 63rd Grammy Award Premiere Ceremony which is set to hold on Sunday, March 14, 2021.
Burna Boy, who is the first Nigerian artiste to earn back to back Grammy nominations, will now also be the first-ever afrobeat act to perform at the event.
He is nominated in the Best Global Music Category alongside Tuareg desert rock group Tinariwen, NYC afrobeat outfit Antibalas, Brazilian-American Bebel Gilberto, and British-Indian sitar player Anoushka Shankar.
