Burna Boy congratulates Angelique Kidjo on her Grammy win, calls her 'Mama Africa'

In the end, it's all love, respect and mutual support.

Angelique Kidjo dedicates her Grammy Award to Burna Boy in touching speech

After a few hours of no social media activity by Burna Boy - who didn't even post a picture of himself at the Grammy Awards - he has congratulated Angelique Kidjo on her win. A few hours ago, he took to his Twitter account to express his excitement at Angelique Kidjo's win.

He wrote that, "I love you forever @angeliquekidjo and every single person that rooted for me, I don’t take any of it lightly! The world get ready cause we’re all coming! #FOOTONNECK2020." During a Breakfast Club interview on Power 105.1, New York, Burna Boy said that he personally sought out Angelique Kidjo for his Grammy-nominated album, African Giant.

In the same breath, the self-acclaimed 'African Giant' also commiserated with Kobe Bryant's family. He wrote, "If I wasn’t doing music I would have played basketball, and it’s all because of Kobe! We’ve lost a legend and our hearts are breaking! Prayers up for his family #ripkobeandgianna."

During her acceptance speech, Angelique Kidjo also gave Burna Boy a shout-out. In the end, it's all love, respect and mutual support.
