BEVERLY HILLS, April 1, (THEWILL) – Nigerian singer, Burna Boy, has been nominated for the 2021 BRIT Awards.

The Organisers of the award, who sometimes are referred to as the British version of the Grammys announced the nominees on Wednesday.

The self-acclaimed African giant was nominated for the ‘International Male Solo Artist’ category alongside The Weeknd, Bruce Springsteen, Childish Gambino and Tame Impala.

Other categories of the award are ‘Mastercard Album of the Year,’ ‘Song of the Year,’ ‘Best New Artist,’ ‘Male Solo Artist,’ ‘Female Solo Artist,’ ‘Best Group,’ ‘International Female,’ and ‘Rising Star.’

This year’s edition of the award ceremony is scheduled to hold on May 11  after the initial delay due to the coronavirus pandemic.
