Burna Boy Live in Mauritius
The Grammy nominated Nigerian singer and songwriter, Burna Boy will be performing live in Mauritius the first time ever!
African Giant. That’s the title of Burna Boy’s much acclaimed latest album, but he’s also justifiably used the words to describe himself – he’s a superstar, not in only in his homeland Nigeria but all over the world.
His 2013 studio debut L.I.F.E., released on Lagos label Aristokrat, was heavily influenced by pan-African sounds and marked him out as one to watch in Nigeria. Subsequent releases have continued to build on his distinctive musical identity, a blend of Nigerian music, dancehall, rap and R&B, sung in English, Pidgin, Igbo and Yoruba.
His Afro-fusion music is essentially a blend of afrobeats laced with R&B and reggae – a style that has gone to win the hearts of masses, resulting in an appearance at Coachella, a sold-out Wembley Arena in London and a sold-out Partille Arena in Sweden.
Over the years he has also collaborated with a wide range of artists such as Lily Allen, Dave, Major Lazer, Stormzy & Ed Sheeran on the Own It single. Earlier this year he featured on Beyoncé’s soundtrack album The Lion King: The Gift.
