Award–winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy has secured two nominations at the Black Entertainment Television BET Awards for this year.

The organizers of the annual BET Awards have announced the nominations for the 2024 BET Awards, with African global stars making a significant impact.

The ‘City Boys’ crooner was nominated in two categories, including Best Male R&B/Pop Artist and Best Male Hip Hop Artist respectively.

This double nomination shows Burna Boy’s dominance in both the Hip-Hop and R&B/Pop genres. He is also going up against big names in the industry like Drake, Usher, Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar, Future, Gunna and the likes.

Burna Boy has previously won BET Awards for Best International Act in 2019 and 2020.

He is no stranger to the BET stage. However, these nominations mark a significant achievement in his career as he receives nominations in these categories for the first time.

Last year, Burna Boy failed to win in any of his seven nominations at the 2023 BET Hip-Hop Awards.
