Benson Idonije, Grandfather to popular Nigerian afro beat artiste, Burna Boy has said he never imagined that his grand son would grow this big in his music career.
He made this revelation in an interview exclaiming how happy he is with the afro beat artiste and how big he has grown in his career.
In his words, he said :
“I did not envisage it initially but at some point, I knew that he was going to go very far because of the eclectic and elevated nature of his music. I didn’t know this from the beginning but at some point, I knew.”
He the continued:
“I feel great, I’m happy that his music has reached the level that he can be considered as part of world music.
“I think Burna will win his category because his music is stronger (than the music of others) and his image is bigger. I think that the whole trajectory is leading to him winning the Grammy. I am very optimistic.”
It should be recalled that the singer was nominated for the 2019 Grammy awards after bagging about 4 awards in the 13th Headies award ceremony held sometime in October this year.
