Burna Boy Gets Nominated in This Year’s BRIT Awards; See Full Nomination List Here 

Nigerian music star and Grammy Award winner, Burna Boy, has gained another international recognition as he is being nominated in this year’s BRIT Awards under the category of “International Male Solo Artist” alongside The Weeknd, Childish Gambino, Bruce Springsteen and Tame Impala.

The annual ceremony, which normally takes place in February was postponed by three months because of safety and logistical concerns as regards the pandemic.

The winners of the 2021 awards will be announced at a ceremony on May 11 at London’s O2 Arena, though it is not clear what form the ceremony will take because of coronavirus restrictions.

Also, for the first time, best album at UK pop’s biggest annual event has four women nominated on a five-act shortlist, a contrast to last year when the category was criticised for a lack of female artists.
