Watch: Burna Boy Performs A Medley Of “Level Up,” “Onyeka,” And “Ye” At The 2021 Grammy Awards

Burna Boy performed to close the 2021 Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony.

The performance of “Level Up,” “Onyeka,” and “Ye” came after the Nigerian artist won Best Global Music Album for Twice as Tall. The Global Music Album category was recently reconfigured from previous iterations as the award for Best World Music Album; Twice as Tall won over records from Anoushka Shankar, Bebel Gilberto, Antibalas, and Tinariwen.

The performance began outside the National Arts Theatre in Lagos. He was joined by powerful choir singers dressed in white, before moving into a space decorated with stained glass where he was backed by singers, dancers and instrumentalists in traditional African dress.

The performance ended in a room filled with fog and mirrored screens, with the gospel choir returning and more singers dressed in white joining the action.
