Burna Boy 2018 to 2019 Awards
I mean this guy is so on fire and I do be crazy not crank out this post on his achievements.
I am super happy for Burna Boy who is currently one of the biggest artists in Naija.
It’s been Davido and Wizkid tearing up the whole place both locally and internationally.
But that changed when Burna Boy turned the table in his favor. Music is about consistently dropping hits that resonate and this guy just showed us that.
Let’s get into the details now, shall we?
In 2018 Burna Boy Ye hit the country bad and all you could hear was the song being played. almost on every nuke and cranny to the 9ja.
That year Oluwa Burna racked up 4 awards from Sound City.
Here’s a list of the awards he won at Sound City Festival award night.
- AFRICAN ARTISTE OF THE YEAR AWARD
- LISTENER’S CHOICE AWARD
- SONG OF THE YEAR AWARD
- BEST MALE MVP AWARD
Just after that the Portharcourt born 28 years old singer picked BET award for beat African art.
An award which Damini Ogulus mother and manager received leaving a scintillating speech.
Here is the line that drove everyone in the room to stand up to give her a standing ovation.
Thank you BET, thank you, Africa, which is the constituent you and I have been remembered for. If Burna Boy was here on this stage, I believe that his words would be remember you were African before you became anything else.
Don’t need to blow that out of proportion…
Here is the video for you!
The singer also quickly take the best African artist of the year award in the latest season. of the Vodafone Ghana award.
These are some of the awards he raked in within 2018 right into 2019.
But wait there’s more!
What Record Did Burna Boy Break In UK
Damini Ogulu who currently has a net worth of 1 million US dollars broke the record as. first African artist with the highest-charting record on UK soil.
Here’s what’s interesting!
Did you know that Damini is also the second only artist in Africa besides King Sunny Ade. to have the highest charting history on Billboard?
Well, I know you about to scream incredible upon hearing this but don’t.
He probably isn’t done yet, so, I will advise you to keep that screaming for some other time you know.
African Giant also has taken the top 2 spot on UK Top Album Charts displacing the likes of Beyonce Lion King album and Indigo by Chris Brown.
The interesting thing though is that even Burna Boy was featured in Beyonce Lion King album.
I remember a few years back when he debuted in the Naija music industry right?
I wouldn’t have tipped him to beat the likes of Beyonce and Chris to clinch number 2 spot on UK charts.
Beyonce album also featured the likes of Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Yemi Alade, Tekno and others.
But from that album here is my two favorite tracks.
You could say I am biased because I am a Nigerian but you what they, we have to stick together.
- Wizkid ft Beyonce brown skin girl
- Tiwa Savage ft Beyonce Keys to the kingdom
Those two songs are exceptional I have to say but wait till you have listened to it.
Wizkid is currently one of the richest Musician in Africa and heck even one of the best.
but Damini just prove to you and me that records are meant to be broken right?
Wizkid sounds from the other side debut at number 107 on Billboard 200 while Burna Boy African Giant debut at number 104.
Who is Burna Boy African Giant Inspiration
If you have listened to Burna Boy style of songs, you do say he draws inspiration from the King.
But who is this King?
Well, the King is Fela Anikulapo Kuti one of Nigerians most revered singer in history.
Fela Kuti is the founder of Afrobeat a genre of music in Africa that systematically fused. traditional and modem day music together.
Music is art and for one to arguably become the best, you need to stand for something bigger.
Something’s even bigger than yourself and Burnboy did just that when he created Afrofusion.
A genre of music born off Fela’s Afrobeat and hip hop music.
Everyone knows Bob Marley, I mean he’s a beacon of hope for the reggae stars.
If Burna Boy African Giant UK record proves and billboard 200 debut proves anything. it will be that music in Africa is catching up worldwide.
An initiative that’s fast taking center stage and cementing Africa as a powerhouse of good music.
African music is fast rising and best of all, I would predict a shift in the musical market where Africans could be the next market of focus.
I mean Beyonce just explore such possibilities, heck even Chris felt the magic.
The guy literally changed his accent to match Davido Blow my mind song.
Over to you guys!
What do you think the future holds for Burna Boy?
Do you see him getting a Grammy nomination anytime soon?
