Popular singer, Burna Boy has hinted at the possibility of winning a Grammy Award next year.
His album was nominated alongside fellow African singer, Angelique Kidjo, who is seen as his biggest competition to the award.
However, Burna is happy for the success he’s enjoying thus far because it is the beginning of God looking into his matter.
According to him, God has been coming through for him since day one, and this is why he knows what will be his will not go somewhere else.
His words, “Lol! He has been looking into my matter Since Day 1. All in God’s time, you can’t rush Greatness. What is yours will always come to you.”
Do you think he’ll win a Grammy in 2020?
