Burna Boy’s brilliantly catchy brand of Afrobeats has seen him cement his status as one of Africa’s most exciting artists. From his epic 2019 album ‘African Giant‘ to his stunning live performances, here’s why everyone is talking about the Nigerian star.
In 2019, Burna Boy dropped his fourth album African Giant. The 19-track project includes recent singles “Anybody” and “Dangote” plus appearances from YG, Future, Jorja Smith, Jeremih, Damian Marley, and Angelique Kidjo. The record is the follow-up to the Nigerian artist’s 2018 album Outside. Featuring releases like “Anybody,” “On The Low,” “Gbona,” and “Dangote”, it won Album of the Year at the 2019 All Africa Music Awards and was nominated in the Best World Music Album category of the 62nd Grammy Awards.

The Rise of The African Giant
Damini Ogulu, aka Burna Boy, who started making his own music at the age of ten, completed high school near Lagos and then moved to London for further studies. In 2013 Burna Boy released his debut album L.I.F.E., which sold a stunning 40 000 copies on the first day. He followed it up with On A Spaceship in 2015, Outside three years later and then, in 2019, the powerful African Giant. Over the years he has collaborated with a wide range of artists such as Lily Allen, Dave, Major Lazer, Stormzy & Ed Sheeran on the Own It single, and in 2019 he participated on Beyoncé’s soundtrack album The Lion King: The Gift.

With production by LeriQ, Burna Boy created “Like to Party,” which marked his rise to prominence and generated a local buzz along the way. 2013 saw the release of his debut studio album; featuring guest slots from Wizkid, Timaya, 2face, and M.I., L.I.F.E drew favorable reviews from the music press.
For his sophomore effort, 2015’s On a Spaceship, Burna parted ways with both his record company and LeriQ, and delivered a record even more diverse than his first. In 2017, he teamed up with producer Juls for the single “Rock Your Body.” A host of singles followed throughout the year, including “GBA,” “Streets of Africa,” “Koni Baje,” and “Sekkle Down,” featuring J Hus. Dropping the Lily Allen-aided single “Heaven’s Gate” in early January 2018, Burna delivered his third album, Outside, later that month. He returned a year later with the single “Killin Dem,” a collaboration with Zlatan.
The Afro-fusion leader continues to be on a roll since releasing his great 2019 album African Giant and appearing on Beyoncé’s Lion King album. He recently dropped the new single “Money Play” and appeared on the new Stormzy and J Hus albums.
