African Giant: Burna Boy

Damini Ebunolowa Ogulu, better known by his stage name Burna Boy has taken the music industry by storm, and his album ‘Twice As Tall’ shows he has no intention of slowing down. The African Giant describes his music as Afro-fusion, a genre that combines dancehall riddims, with reggae and American rap. August Brown of The Los Angeles Times explains Burna Boy’s sound as: “savvy, modern, but undistracted by obvious crossover moves.” Ogulu is unafraid to explore these depths, unconcerned by critics’ opinions, and often this is when an artist produces their best work. In this instance, it has undeniably worked.
