In the video, Leriaq can be seen visibly excited and asking, “Have you ever seen a Grammy?” Burna Boy wrote;
Early Morning deliveries from across the pond!
My parents prayed for excellent children, not houses, cars or “things”. They asked my sisters for stellar degrees; one got a first class in Finance, the other got a Distinction in Engineering. They asked me for a Grammy, and here we are. I am a product of sacrifice! Thank God and thank you all again!
Burna Boy’s “Twice As Tall” album which won him the Grammy Award has been described by many as a masterpiece. It has hit songs like “Way Too Big“, “Monsters You Made” featuring Chris Martin, “23” and many more. The album also had the legendary Diddy on as executive producer.
