‘African Giant’ Burna Boy became a roaring success

Nigerian star Burna Boy has been named Best International Act by the BET awards in the US for the second year in a row.

Accepting his prize from supermodel Naomi Campbell on Sunday, the musician spoke of historical attempts to reduce Africa to a “dominated nation” adding:

Now is the time to overturn that and go back to the royalty that we were. Because in order for black lives to matter, Africa must matter.”

By all measures, Burna Boy (born Damini Ogulu) is on a remarkable run.

With the release last summer of his latest effort, African Giant, he cemented his standing as the reigning king of African music.

In less than a year, the singer released 10 music videos, performed in 200 cities around the globe, and had his songs streamed some 600 million times.

Even Barack Obama is a fan: Burna’s “Anybody” landed on 44’s list of favorite songs of 2019.
