RMD Says Burna Boy’s Grammy Has Broken Nigerian Music’s Glass Ceiling Of Limitation


BEVERLY HILLS, March 20, (THEWILL) – Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, has joined the throng of admirers congratulating Nigerian musician, Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, for winning his first Grammy Awards.

THEWILL had reported that Burna Boy won the “Best Global Music Album” category of the Grammy Awards 2021 for his album, “Twice as tall.’

Reacting, Richard Mofe-Damijo, stated that Burna Boy’s Grammy win would make people more serious about their work.

He said, “It is going to make everyone stand up and take their work a lot more seriously. Once the international light shines on all of us, it would make people sit up and dream better like there are no limitations. When one sees one’s countryman or someone one feels one is in the same mould and category will win an award, it would make one feel like one can also do it.”

According to RMD, Burna Boy had broken the glass ceiling.

He said, “Burna Boy has broken the glass ceiling (with) his consistency and protest music. You don’t have to wind your waist from morning till night anymore to get attention. You can actually continue from where Fela stopped. For Burna and Wizkid, it is such a beautiful time to be a Nigerian musician. Don’t forget that streaming has already democratised the space.”
