Nigerian singer Burna Boy failed to win any awards at the 2024 NAACP Image Awards, losing in all six categories he was nominated in.

He was beaten by Usher in the Outstanding Male Artist of the Year category, and his song ‘City Boys’ lost to Tems’ ‘Me & U’ for Outstanding International Song.

Burna Boy’s ‘Sittin’ On Top Of The World’ featuring 21 Savage lost the Outstanding Hip-hop/Rap Song category to Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Cobra,’ as well as Best Duo/Group Collaboration (Contemporary) to ‘Sensational’ by Chris Brown featuring Davido and Lojay.

His album, ‘I Told Them…’, did not win the Outstanding Album of the Year category. Instead, the award went to ‘Jaguar II’ by Victoria Monét.

It is worth noting that Burna Boy lost seven nominations at the 2023 BET Hip-Hop Awards, four nominations at the 2024 Grammys, and one nomination at the 2024 Brit Awards.

On a different note, ‘Sensational’ by Chris Brown, featuring Davido and Lojay, which had already won the Best Duo/Group Collaboration (Contemporary) at the 55th Image Awards, also won the Outstanding Visual Album/Song award on the second night.
