Burna Boy is at the forefront of the international wave of dance taking over the music industry. His sound is so musical with just enough rhythmic vibes to keep the dance floor full. His vocals are gruff in all the right places and he provides such a mix of energy on stage.
The Nigerian hit-maker blends his personal and political views together with ease and in a way that adds to the crossover appeal of his sounds. It’s a mix of reggae and Afro-beats with a more hard-hitting edge. His grandfather was Fela Kuti’s manager and Burna Boy cut his teeth on the love of Buju Banton and other reggae/dance hall legends.
Big fan, obviously. You don’t want to miss him tonight at the Summit in Denver (1902 Blake St, Denver, CO 80202).
