The grandson of one of Fela Kuti’s first managers, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy shares Nigerian origins, African pride and a certain charisma with the inventor of Afrobeat. A superstar at home, his notoriety keeps on growing at an international level, evidenced by his collaborations with Drake, Lily Allen and Major Lazer, and his Best International Artist BET award from 2019. The 19-track-strong African Giant also justifies this level of success: the meticulous production and hefty melodies complement his suave, sexy and compelling vocals. His songs elegantly float between R&B, sophisticated pop, soca, zouk, hip-hop but also jazz and rock. Distancing himself from the commercial label of afrobeats, probably out of respect for the image of the original afrobeat, Burna Boy describes his music as afro fusion. The riotous music gives you an unshakeable desire to dance… and makes you ponder the huge influence Africa has on most of today’s music. The calibre of the featured artists (British soul sister Jorja Smith, American prince of R&B Jeremih, the heir to reggae’s leader Damian Marley and Beninese queen Angélique Kidjo for francophone West Africa to name but a few) only goes to show Burna Boy’s aristocratic status in the industry. But even without them, it wouldn’t be difficult to understand the importance of this African Giant. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz
