Burna Boy is undeniably the music industry’s man of the moment, following an outstanding run in 2018 which saw him do his utmost best to demolish the age-long Wizkid-Davido duopoly. The Ye singer, on a quest to prove that his run in the past year is no fluke, has shown no sign of backing down since the curtain of 2019 was drawn. Burna Boy has hit a new stride which includes performing at Coachella this week.
Burna Boy has been on media rounds in the US amidst his African Giant tour that has since seen him become the first Nigerian artist to sell out the prestigious Apollo Theatre in New York City.
Fresh off his appearance on Beats 1 with Ebro Darden, Burna Boy was most recently a guest on ‘Sway in the Morning‘ hosted by veteran rapper and OAP, Sway Collaway. In the interview, Burna Boy spoke on African culture, the African woman, his identity and career trajectory. Burna Boy makes an interesting observation on the warped knowledge about Africa among African- Americans to conditioning. He also talked about the influence of African- Americans among Africans, his recently released EP dubbed ‘Steel & Copper‘ and the late but influential Nipsey Hussle, tipped to be one of the featured artists in Burna Boy’s forthcoming album.
