  • Burna Boy, African Giant, Nominated for 2020 Grammy Awards

Nigerian number one musician in 2019, Damini Ogulu popularly known as Burna Boy, has been nominated for the 2020 Grammy Awards.

Burna Boy’s African Giant album was nominated in the ‘Best World Music category.’

The category comprises of albums containing at least 51 percent of new vocal or instrumental.

Artists nominated alongside Burna Boy were Altin Gün (GECE); Bokanté and Metropole Orkest Conducted By Jules Buckley (What Heat); Nathalie Joachim With Spektral Quartet (Fanm D’Ayiti) and Angelique Kidjo (Celia).

Nigerian artists have started congratulating Burna Boy on his nomination.

In a tweet, Banky W, said, “Our African giant has been nominated for a Grammy!

“Congratulations to @burnaboy, his mom and the entire team.

“Amazing and well deserved. Anything is possible with a little bit of faith and a lot of hard work. So happy for him.”

Don Jazzy, one of the leading producers in the country, said: “Congrats on having the most amazing couple of years. The Grammy is actually just the icing on the already juicy cake.”

He added, “Congrats to the African giant @burnaboy on the Grammy nomination.”

Wizkid said: “King Burna!! Congratulations blood! You deserve everything and more.”

“Congrats @burnaboy, you deserve more than a nomination,” Davido tweeted.

Meanwhile, African unite concert organised in South Africa has been cancelled following public outcry demanding Burna Boy be pulled out.

The reaction was in response to Burna Boy comments on Xenophobia attacks on African immigrants in South Africa.

Burna Boy had promised not to perform in South Africa until the killing of African immigrants living in South Africa stopped.

The organisers of the concert, Phambili Media, in a statement said, “As one of artists at the centre stage of the xenophobic attacks uproar, we saw fit to engage him to be a part of the Africans Unite campaign that aims to ultimately change the current negative narrative to that of solidarity and unity. It seems we have failed in this regard.

“As organisers of the Africans Unite Concert, we continue to advocate for unity and peace. Moreover, we condemn any form of discrimination, violence or aggressive behaviour towards any person due to their gender or nationality.”

“We do, however, stand behind our decision for the initial inclusion of Burna Boy in the Africans Unite Concert line-up,” the statement stated.

Military Storms Bobi Wine House After He Rejects Election Results

Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine, Ugandan presidential candidate in the just concluded presidential race, said the Ugandan military has surrounded his house and even jumped over the fence to take over the compound.

In a quick tweet, the opposition presidential candidate said “My home has been surrounded by soldiers, they’ve jumped over the fence, they’ve taken over my compound, they’ve arrested my security guard.

The invasion was after Bobi Wine had rejected election results and alleged that Thursday’s election was rigged.

He said “every legal option is on the table” to challenge the official results, including peaceful protests. He referred to himself as the “president-elect.”

None of these military intruders is talking to us. We are in serious trouble. We are under siege,” wrote Wine, who was arrested several times during campaigning but never charged while dozens of party members were detained.

Museveni government had cut internet access on the eve of the largely peaceful election day, and it remains off.

According to Uganda’s electoral commission, President Yoweri Museveni leads Wine 62 percent of ballots while Wine had 29 percent. The commission expects to declare the final results on Sunday afternoon.

“We secured a comfortable victory,” Wine said. “I am very confident that we defeated the dictator by far.” He was considering “peaceful and nonviolent protests” over the declared results and said “every legal option is on the table.” Candidates can challenge election results at the Supreme Court.

Heartbroken American Mistress Displays Dangote’s Buttocks in a Viral Video

2021 started with Dangote trending across social media after an obvious heartbroken American mistress shared her relationship with the world’s richest black man.

Bea Lewis, a restauranteur based in Atlanta, Georgia, US, took to her Instagram @iambealewis to share her experience dating the richest black man alive and how he broke her heart into 1000 pieces.

In her words, she said “In my 33rd year, I dated the richest black man in the world. He broke my heart in 1000 pieces.” 

She explained that “I learned more from him than any person I’ve ever met. Communicating with a billionaire daily makes you see the world different than your humble beginnings in liberty city.

“I became more organized and finally am able to step away from the daily kitchen operations.”

Bea Lewis added that Dangote changed her perspective on work ethic and patience.

“Once my mindset changed, the universe gravitated me to people that uplifted me and increased my net worth mentally and financially,” she stated.

She then attached a picture of them together.

However, in another shocking revelation, another American with Instagram handle @allarounda1 posted a video of Mr. Dangote on a couch inside what seems like a luxury yacht after a back and forth argument with Be Lewis on who truly dated the world’s richest black man. It was unclear in which country the yacht was sailing when the mistress took the video, but it clearly showed she shot the video without his knowledge. See the video below.
