The popular music chart and entertainment platform called Burna Boy ‘Nigeria’s Surprise Success Story’ in a new article which chronicles his rise to international fame.
The ‘On The Low’ crooner spoke about his upcoming album the ‘African Giant’ which drops later this week. He said a few things about the album being his most personal LP yet, “things that have been going on there since the 1960s” — from political corruption to violence — “are still happening now, so I have to be cautious; I have to be careful how I say things.”
Still speaking with Billboard, Burna Boy picked out those who would be ‘Nigeria’s Next Wave’. He named three artistes; Zlatan Ibile whom he featured on ‘Killin Dem’, Naira Marley and the sensational Teni.
Meanwhile, Burna Boy featured on Beyonce’s new album an a track ‘Ja Ara E’ which dropped last Friday.
