Afro-fusion is a style of music that combines Afrobeat, dancehall riddims, reggae, American rap, and R&B, according to Burna Boy. Burna Boy’s music is “savvy and modern but undistracted by obvious crossover moves,” according to August Brown of The Los Angeles Times.
African Giant, Burna Boy’s fourth studio album, was released on July 26, 2019. Six singles have backed it: “Gbona”, “On the Low”, Killin Dem”, “Dangote”, “Anybody” and “Pull Up”.
2018 saw the start of the album’s recording. The record, he claimed to Billboard magazine, is his most intimate to date. He initially hosted a private listening session in Los Angeles and announced intentions to release the album in April 2019.
On social media, pictures and videos from the listening session were posted. The original track listing for African Giant was 16 tracks. Burna Boy headlined the second part of his African Giant tour, African Giant Returns, to support the record. “My Money, My Baby,” a song by Burna Boy, was included on the Queen & Slim soundtrack album. Fela Kuti’s 1972 song “Shakara” is sampled in “My Money, My Baby,” which is referred to be a “Afrobeat-tinged track.”
Twice As Tall Album by Burna Boy took up the 2021 Grammy Away Global Music Award. Following the nomination for African Giant, which he lost to Angelique Kidjo the year before, it was his second nomination in a row. Burna Boy anticipated winning the category, but he unsurprisingly fell short against the legendary Beninois. In “Level Up” (the opener to Twice As Tall), Burna Boy claimed that he was depressed after losing the Grammy category to Angelique Kidjo.
I remember when I couldn’t level up
‘Cause the Grammys had me feeling sick as f*ck
Throwing up and sh*t
Asking questions like, “Why it wasn’t us?
Almost had a n*gga feeling envious (serious)
Due to her suspicion that Burna would feel awful about losing, Legendary Kidjo prepared a video in which she dedicated her Grammy triumph to Burna Boy.
Burna Boy has a history of seeking out controversy. He actually made it to our list of controversial Nigerian figures since he frequently makes news for unimportant matters.
Burna Boy has a ton of talent, yet despite this, he frequently struggles with insecurity and never quits claiming tremendous be the best. Although this is not a problem, Burna seems to perceive equal success as a threat. He once mocked Wizkid and Davido for claiming to be the “best of all time.” Burna also dissed Wizkid, claiming his Grammy win was “gum body,” meaning that Wizkid was the winner because to the effect of his cooperation with Beyonce. It’s not like Burna and Wizkid are pals.
Burna Boy has been dating British dancehall musician Stefflon Don for some time. The two appear committed to having a long-term relationship.
