The success of African Giant LP
Burna Boy’s African Giant LP was nominated for Best World Music Album this year at the 2020 Grammy Awards, becoming the only Nigerian nominee.
At the Soundcity MVP Awards Festival, he won Best Male MVP, African Artist of the Year and Song of the Year award. He has also won the Best International Act at this year’s BET Awards in June.
The whole career of Burna Boy was always bigger than him. Born in Nigeria, Damini Ogulu, the 28-year-old singer-songwriter is one of the championing artists of contemporary African music — especially Afrobeats, an exquisite fusion of jazz, blues, calypso, highlife and traditional Yoruba sounds.
Burna Boy grew up listening to the music of Jamaican, Buju Banton, American, DMX, and Nigerian legends, Fela Kuti. At the age of 10, he started making music and is estimated to have a net worth of around 4 million dollars.
CNN reported on November 21, 2019, how Burna Boy’s 19-track album, African Giant, turned into a roaring success.
African Giant is Nigerian singer Burna Boy’s fourth studio album.
It was released by Spaceship Entertainment, Bad Habit, Atlantic Records, and Warner Music on July 26, 2019. The album is a mixture of afro-fusion, afro-beat, dancehall, pop and hip hop.
The album blends Afro-fusion, Afrobeat, dancehall, rock, and hip hop.
Today, at 28, he’s one of the most talked-about stars in Africa, sampled and featured by some of the world’s greatest artists, including Fall Out Boys, Jorja Smith and Beyonce.
Burna Boy has gained prominence with collaborations from award-winning artists such as Angelique Kidjo, Damian Marley and Lily Allen, as the Afrobeats sound has also gained worldwide recognition.
