Burna Boy becomes first African artist to perform at the Grammys live event

Burna Boy is set to make history by becoming the first African artist to perform at the Grammys live recording award show in an announcement made on January 22, 2024.

This is another landmark feat for the Nigerian superstar who holds the record of being the first Nigerian artist operating within the Nigerian music industry to win a Grammy when he won it in 2021 for Best Global Album for his fifth album 'Twice As Tall'.

At the 2024 Grammys scheduled for February 4, Burna Boy is nominated in four categories which is a Nigerian record for most nominations in a Grammy year. Among his nominations is the Best Melodic Rap Performance for his single 'Sittin' On Top Of The World' featuring 21 Savage which makes him the first Nigerian lead artist to be nominated outside of the global categories.

Other performers announced alongside Burna Boy are Country star Luke Comb and rapper Travis Scott. They join Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa and Olivia Rodrigo who were previously announced as performers for the 2024 Grammy live show.

Burna Boy's performance at the 2024 Grammys is the second time he will be performing at a Grammys event after he performed at the 2021 Grammys Premiere show.
