A video of his team members jubilating at the arrival of the plaque was also sighted on his Instagram page.
In his caption, the Twice as Tall singer explained that his parents prayed for children who would do excellent things in life.
Burna Boy mentioned his sister who bagged a first-class in Finance, another who got a distinction in engineering and now him with a Grammy award.
In his words:
"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!"
