Ahead of the award, many fans of the singer had taken to the Twitter community to voice their good wishes and goodwill for the singer. They didn’t fail to state that they expected the African Giant to bring home the Grammy statue.
Fellow singers and celebrities weren’t left out as well, as they also sent in their massages. Everyone was optimistic about Burna bringing home the award.
Sadly, Angelique Kidjo beat him to him this time and the fans of the singer had taken to the Twitter community again to air their views. Different types of reactions were gotten from the fans of the singer, yet none came from the singer himself.
A few hours ago, the singer finally broke his silence and took to Twitter to post a reaction. He retweeted the news of Angelique’s win and wrote: “Mama Africa”.
