It only took Burna Boy a few years to achieve what most of his contemporaries couldn’t achieve in so many years. He stormed the music industry in 2010 and eventually worked his way to the top after two years, carving a niche for himself.
The singer may not be as popular as Fela Kuti or King Sunny Ade but he sure has virtually everything it takes to become great like these men of excellence. Burna Boy has the voice, talent, skills, charisma.
Burna Boy, born Damini Ogulu, arrived into the world on July 2, 1991, in Ahoada, Port Harcourt. He was born to Nigerian parents Mr. and Mrs. Ogulu, who raised him in Ahoada and later moved to Lagos State, where the performer completed his basic education.
The singer ended the year 2013 with one nomination and two awards. He won the Best Pop award for his song “Like to Party” at the South-South Music Awards Best Pop and the Best New Act of the Year at the Nigerian Entertainment Award for himself.
