Burna Boy Makes Grammy History with Energetic Afro-Fusion Performance

Burna Boy made Grammy history with his first-ever performance, asserting himself as the inaugural Afro-fusion artist to grace the prestigious stage. Despite his association with Afrobeats, Burna Boy has consistently labeled his music as Afro-fusion, a distinction shared by artists like Amaarae.

Trevor Noah, the South African host, playfully teased about Afrobeats before introducing Burna Boy’s groundbreaking performance. The Nigerian sensation, adorned in a red rhinestone jacket and matching ensemble, brought vibrant energy, backed by dancers and a band in green attire, a nod to the Nigerian flag.

Burna Boy seamlessly transitioned from the modern track “City Boys” to the timeless “Sittin’ On Top of the World,” accompanied by Brandi, who hadn’t graced a stage since the ’90s. Brandi’s smooth vocals, paired with Burna Boy’s charisma, symbolized their joint triumph, aptly highlighted by her scarlet boots.

The performance reached another level as 21 Savage, part of the remix for “Sittin’ On Top of the World,” made his Grammy stage debut in an all-red ensemble. Burna Boy’s Grammy performance not only celebrated his musical prowess but also marked a significant moment for Afro-fusion on the global stage.
