Burna boy is a young artist who has the drive and versatility that the industry has been starving for (see what we did there). He pulls influences from all over the African diaspora as he croons with Nigerian pidgin one minute, then sings a Dancehall tune the next minute. So, it’s no surprise that he draws his influence from the great Fela Kuti and Bob Marley as suggested on his newly released album cover titled “L.I.F.E.” As a matter of fact, Burna Boy’s grandfather, Benson Idons was the first manager of Afrobeat legend, Fela Kuti.
Born Damini Ogulu on 2nd July, 1991 in Port Harcourt, Nigeria he would later go on to furthering his education in the UK and honing the unique sound that we now recognize to be Burna boy. With songs like “Run My Race,” “Tonight,” and the Official African Summer Jam “Like to Party,” he has introduced a new style that definitely leaves an impression people will remember.
Burna boy is a reminder of the talent and culture that Africa has contributed to the world as he seamlessly blends Dance-hall, Afrobeat, R&B and Hip-Hop. We have no doubt that his unique sound is sure to make him legendary.
