The Grammy-nominated studio album African Giant contains songs like Anybody, On the Low, Killin Dem etc.

Burna Boy sweeps some awards in 2020, including the Grammys, BET, MOBO, Brits, Edison award and so on with certifications in different global music markets.

Wizkid came with his fourth studio album in 2020 to practically change the game in the Nigerian music industry.

Wizkid was the first Africa to have his song certified platinum in the USA, sold out the O2 3times, first Nigerian song to debut on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at #9, spent multiple weeks at #1 on the Billboard World Albums chart, Highest peaking Nigerian album on BillBoard 200.
