Burna Boy and Angelique Kidjo were both nominees for the category of ‘World Best Music” in the Grammys.
Angelique Kidjo went home with the award, which made Nigerian social media users to start some digging and investigations. While some thought Angelique Kidjo should win because she’s a Legend, others thought Burna Boy was supposed to win.
The digging brought up some pictures of Burna Boy asking Angelique Kidjo for a feature way back in 2017
Look at who Burna boy was up against… she dedicated her award to him. That’s still a win for the African Giant. @burnaboy 🦍 she’s 31 years older than him.. The sky is still the starting point. His Role model won. pic.twitter.com/ybF6mYEiRv

Another person brought up an old video of Angelique Kidjo performing and found out Burna Boy used some of Angelique’s rhythms when making “Anybody”
Concerning Angelique kidjo, she's a living legend. Here is one of her songs. Notice something?.. This is where Burna boy got the rhythm for his "Anybody" song pic.twitter.com/379foYB7VE
