Early Morning deliveries from across the pond! 😪
My parents prayed for excellent children, not houses, cars or “things”. They asked my sisters for stellar degrees; one got a first class in Finance, the other got a Distinction in Engineering. They asked me for a Grammy, and here we are. I am a product of sacrifice! Thank God and thank you all again! ❤️
Burna Boy’s ‘Twice As Tall’ album emerged winner of the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category ahead of ‘Fu Chronicles’ by Antibalas, ‘Agora’ by Bebel Gilberto, ‘Love Letters’ by Anoushka Shankar, and, ‘Amadjar’ by Tinariwen.
‘Twice As Tall’ was executive-produced by American music mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and featured musical acts like Chris Martin of Coldplay, Naughty by Nature, Stormzy, Youssou N’dour and Sauti Sol.
