Burna Boy makes history as first Nigerian to win ‘Best World Album’ at 2020 Edison Awards

Nigerian singer, Burna Boy has made history with his “African Giant” Album as he wins ‘Best World Album’ at the just concluded 2020 Edison Awards.

The “Wonderful” crooner won the ‘Best World Album’ award at the 2020 Edison Awards for his African Giant album, making him the first Nigerian to win the award and the third African, after Youssou N’Dour and Angélique Kidjo.

Announcing the self acclaimed Odogwu as the winner for the prestigious award category, the Edison Award jury said;

“The Nigerian Burna Boy is a sensation in world and pop music. His music is unmistakably African, but fits seamlessly into today’s pop music culture. ‘African Giant’ contains a challenging mix of Rap, RnB, Reggae and African pop music and at times recalls the also Nigerian great Fela Kuti.”
