However, some Nigerians are not surprised because they believe the legend was no match for Burna Boy, while a few say Burna was cheated and deserved the award.

The comparison between the two and criticism led to an online debate as other fans find annoying what people said in the process of baring their minds.

Perhaps most notable among them is a Twitter user who said, “I am surprised you all thought Burna would win. Angelique Kidjo is a legend.”

Another said: “As they know she is truly a legend, and it is not about judging legend status. If it was, Fela will win it with every album and Burna Boy Is really hard-working and finds it a privilege to be in the same category in the grammies”
