Burna Boy called out his haters on Twitter, Saturday, for praying he’d lose at the Grammys.

Burna Boy responded to his critics who hoped he wouldn’t take home a huge prize at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards by winning the Best Global Music Album award last weekend for his project, “Twice As Tall,” which went viral on Twitter. Tinariwen, Antibalas (FU Chronicles), Bebel Gilberto (Agora), Anoushka Shankar (Love Letters), and others were also nominated (Amadjar).


“GOD is most definitely NOT A MAN. I will never forget how so many of you prayed that I don’t win. Too dumb to understand that you also win if I win. No worry, this is just the beginning. God is Great,” Burna tweeted, Saturday. “God bless everyone/ anyone who has stood with me! Let’s keep making history! Every single person that worked on the project, my incredible team that works 24/7, and my OUTSIDERS!! Big love always.”

While accepting his award, Burna sent a shoutout to his home country Nigeria as well as Africa as a whole: “Africa is in the house, men! Africa, we are in the house! You get me? This is a big win for Africans of my generation all over the world and this should be a lesson for every African out there. No matter where you are, no matter what you plan to do, you can achieve it. No matter where you are from because you are a king. Look at me: Grammy award-winning Burna Boy.”

With this award, Burna has already been out to a hot start in 2021. He recently was featured on Becky G’s first song of the year, “Rotate. ”
