Burna Boy is our celebrity and musician of the moment, currently enjoying all the hypes of staying consistent and true tonl his art, now reaping the harvest of a long earned harvest.

Afro-fusion singer and songwriter, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, known professionally as Burna Boy is definitely on an unstoppable journey to stardom. Having stayed unrated for a long time, the recent Best International Act at the 2019 BET Awards has a firm grip on success and his riding to full capacity.

The 28-year-old started off at Aristokrat Records, releasing his debut studio album L.I.F.E on August 12, 2013 and sold 40,000 copies on the first day of its release.

Then came some of our all time favourite; “Like to Party”, “Tonight”, “Always Love You”, “Run My Race” and “Yawa Dey”. Things started looking really promising for the ‘say it as it is’ Burna after the release of his third studio album, Outside.

  • From what he has been able to do so far, from no where he was able to put his style of music on the global stage, I believe we should expect more from him because he seems to have got the idea and talent to cook more hits on the menu of his music list... He definitely can do it...

  • Burna boy rose from the B list to a top,strong and fierce A lister. His style of music called Afrofussion is like a pizza and just like a pizza,the most important element in a pizza is the 'dough'. The Afro Beat base in afro fission is the base of his style of music. He makes a really nice pizza.

  • Oluwaburna!!! Burna boy can of course be consistent if he continues to deliver with his steady vibing Afrobeat produced by Kel P, his nice lyrics and his perfect use of his vocals, accompanied by a littlw attributes of the great Fela Kuti.

    We should really expect greater things the African Giant.

  • The Almighty burna boy is making the country proud and me mostly, I never loved his music though since he got all those awards I heard of and I also did my own personal research I've come to love the guy so much than I can't even wait for his next track.

    The guy is blessed with music just like WizKid ,baba NLA, they are really good with music .

  • From the first time I heard this talented musician I know this guy will have a great future. Not disappoint, he rose up to prove me right. Definitely he will go extra mile and do more than this. Who knows? He might rack up a Grammy award in the time to come.

    - Abubakar Mustapha - 2019-09-29 13:53:56 Quote

  • Burna boy has been a great musician from the beginning the only problem he had was his attitude and to the Nigerian muMusic Industry and that was why he was not getting the needed recognition he deserved but now there's no holding how good he his and they have no choice but to recognize his talent. I think he will still be around for a very long time and he would win a lot of award and if not Grammy also

  • Burna boy has been long underrated, being a fan from day one I expected this international recognition to be much more earlier than this, but anyways it still happened, and I strongly believe Burna boy won't fade because he releases song with vibes with which theres attached  content, we pray he keeps the Nigeria flag high flying nationally and internationally wise.

  • Yeah of course, burna boy is going to consistent and he is going to be on top for long time. Cos he got this vibes that no other musicians in Nigeria can contend with. How flow is different, the melody is something else so i see him staying on top for long time.

  • Burna boy is one of the best artist presently in Nigeria and I don't see him not being consistent in the industry. He calls himself Africa giant which definitely he is worth it.

  • Burnaboy indeed is a very big artist and I dkndo think his career is dying any moment from now...Hard work is taking the guy to places and I just think he's good at what he does..

    He's not dying down any moment from now is just the thing Im very sure Of.....African Giant

    - Abdulsalam Hassan - 2019-10-08 19:53:56 Quote

  • Yeah, I truly believe burna boy can successfully be consistent in the music industry. Burna boy is the of the best artist Nigeria has ever gotten. He studies the music market before dropping a track or album and moreover, his songs flow along with the current situations of the economy even though, he is the most belittled artist among others.
