Nigerian artist Burna Boy’s streak of disappointments at award ceremonies continued at the 2024 NAACP Image Awards, where he failed to secure victory in six nominated categories.

Despite his self-proclaimed title of ‘African Giant,’ Burna Boy was unable to clinch the title of Outstanding Male Artist of the Year, losing to Usher. Additionally, his song ‘City Boys’ was bested in the Outstanding International Song category by his compatriot Tems’ track ‘Me & U.’

Furthermore, Burna Boy’s collaboration ‘Sittin’ On Top Of The World’ featuring 21 Savage was outshined in the categories of Outstanding Hip-hop/Rap Song and Best Duo/Group Collaboration (Contemporary) by ‘Cobra’ by Megan Thee Stallion and ‘Sensational’ by Chris Brown featuring Davido and Lojay, respectively.

In addition to these losses, Burna Boy’s album ‘I Told Them…’ failed to secure victory in the Outstanding Album of the Year category, losing to ‘Jaguar II’ by Victoria Monét.

This adds to Burna Boy’s previous disappointments, including seven losses at the 2023 BET Hip-hop Awards, four at the 2024 Grammys, and one at the 2024 Brit Awards.
