The “Ye” singer will perform at the event alongside Lido Pimienta, a Colombian-Canadian musician; Poppy, an American singer; and Rufus Wainwright. Three-time Grammy nominee Jhené Aiko will host the event. This will make Burna Boy the first Afrobeats star to perform at the Grammys.

According to the Academy, “all of the premiere ceremony performers and the host are nominated this year, as are most of the presenters.”

Meanwhile, Burna Boy is up for the “Best Global Music Album” category for “Twice As Tall”, his 2020 album, at the forthcoming edition of the awards.

This makes it the second Grammy nomination for the music star. Burna received a nod in the “Best World Music Album” category for his ‘African Giant‘ album in 2019. However, during the 62nd Grammy Awards, he lost to Angelique Kidjo, Beninese singer-songwriter

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 63rd Grammy award was postponed to March after it was scheduled for January. The event will kick off with a star-studded tribute performance to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Marvin Gaye, late American music legend.

We can’t wait to see Burna Boy’s electrifying performance come 14th March 2021. We are also hoping he brings the award home this time.
