Bose Ogulu, the mother and manager of the superstar singer Burna Boy, expressed pride in him even after he lost his four Grammy nominations.

On her Instagram page, the ever-proud mother hailed her son as the blueprint of Afrobeat music, lauding him for the legacy he has built.


She highlighted how her son consistently carved his name into the sands of time, emphasizing that he is a divine gift, bringing blessings without sorrow.

Bose Ogulu calls him the blueprint

On Sunday, February 4th, the Crypto Com Arena in Los Angeles hosted the 66th Academy Awards, where music stars globally converged.

Regrettably, no Nigerian artist clinched an award, facing defeat against their rivals. Burna Boy, with four nominations in Global Music Performance, Best African Music, Best Melodic Rap, and Best Global Music Album, saw victory elude him in all categories.


In the category of Best African Music Performance, City Boys lost to South African singer Tyla, while Burna’s ‘Alone’ succumbed to Zakir Hussain, Bela Fleck, and Edgar Myer’s ‘Pashto’. The Best Melodic Rap Performance honor slipped through Burna Boy’s grasp as American rappers Lil Durk and J Cole claimed the win. His final nomination saw World Fusion band Shakti’s ‘This Moment’ triumph.

Despite these setbacks, Burna Boy’s mother, Bose Ogulu, remained steadfastly proud. Last year, she had expressed her pride in him after an outstanding performance at the Dreamville festival, where he brought the house down.

Sharing a photo of herself, Akin, and Burna Boy, she conveyed her post-performance excitement, stating that she was still shaking from his exceptional onstage delivery.


Equally, her joy overflowed when Burna Boy became the first African artist to perform at the Billboard Music Awards. Taking to her Instagram, Bose Ogulu applauded her son for this historic achievement, enumerating the many records he broke. She highlighted that Burna Boy is the first African artist not only to perform at Billboard but also at the Grammys, BET Hip-hop Awards, and Brits.
