Burna Boy received seven nominations for the highly acclaimed BET Hip Hop Awards 2023. This remarkable achievement not only solidifies his status as an international music icon but also underscores the global recognition of African talent in the hip-hop genre.

Burna Boy, born Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, has consistently proven his prowess in the hip-hop world. His unique blend of African rhythms, reggae, and hip-hop has captivated audiences worldwide, earning him a dedicated fanbase and critical acclaim. With his previous Grammy wins and nominations, Burna Boy has demonstrated his ability to transcend borders and make music that resonates globally.

Although Burna Boy has been trending for all the wrong reasons, his latest  album ‘I Told Them’ has been added to his musical collection as his 7th album, so I guess we could say seven is his lucky number. 

The seven BET Hip Hop Awards nominations bestowed upon Burna Boy span various categories, showcasing his versatility as an artist. These nominations include:

Hip Hop Artist Of The Year

Best Live Performer    

Lyricist of the Year

Hustler Of The Year

Best Collaboration: “Sittin’ On Top Of The World” Burna Boy feat. 21 Savage

Best Hip Hop Video: “Sittin’ On Top Of The World” Burna Boy feat. 21 Savage

The 2023 BET Awards will be taped in Atlanta on Tuesday, Oct. 3, and will premiere on BET one week later, on Tuesday, Oct. 10, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The BET Hip Hop Awards, an annual event, is known for celebrating excellence in hip-hop and urban music.
