which he left for the UK and found his true calling “music” but never the less Burna Boy’s granddad, Benson Idons, back in the days used to be the legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s manager, So, it’s no surprise Burna’s early influences to music have turned out to be.

Burna boy has numerous hit songs including “Last Last”… One of the debut songs that brought him first fame was “Abeg Abeg Abeg” before the big hit. ”like to party” which had an amazing video directed by “adasa square ball media” at this point now he is big and doing good in the music industry.

Burna Boy is a splendid vocalist and he oozes versatility as his unique sound blends Dance-hall, Afrobeat, R&B, and Hip-Hop into one tightly knit package. His songs span from ballads full of depth, sometimes to the controversial subject matter as well as, as his Dance-hall tendency implies, songs that are just meant to get you in the mood for the groove.

Signed previously to Aristokrat Records and, more often than not, teaming up with their in-house producer, the acclaimed Leriq; Burna Boy has been able to churn out two hot mixtapes – “Burn Notice” and “Burn Identity” back in April and November 2011 respectively. “Burn Notice” produced the catchy anthem “Abeg Abeg Abeg”; the soulful “Sweetest Girl” featuring Leriq and the dance-hall candy, “Wombo Lombo Something”.

While “Burn Identity” showed a more mainstream quality to his music as he experimented with Reggae, some Afro Pop, and more of his prevalent Dance-hall influenced sound.

Here, he jumped on Frank Ocean‘s “Novacane” to tell his sojourn into the music industry on “My Journey”; which featured the likes of Davido, Korkormikor, L.O.S, P.R.E. (of Twisted Mindz), Sauce Kid and Shank, and produced such bangers as “Firewood”, “Trumpet” Feat. Davido, “Wickedest Luv” Feat. L.O.S. and “Friend Like Me” Feat. Shank.
