Nigerian Afro-beats Artist Burna Boy has bagged a nomination for the 2021 BRIT awards in the UK ahead of the main ceremony slated for the 02 Arena in London on the 11th of May.
The list on nominees was unveiled to the public on Wednesday which saw the artist shortlisted in the international Male Solo arts category for the second consecutive year alongside artists like the weekend, Bruce Springsteen, Childish Gambino and Tame Impala.
