Ajayi said commendations go to a combination that includes talented artistes, exceptional producers, DJs, local and international promoters, leading entertainment Public Relations, marketing professionals, and a growing local audience.

”The Afro-fusion artiste hit the music world like a storm with the release of his global breakout album, “African Giant”,

” This has since staked a claim as one of the biggest stars on the music scene worldwide, a crossover sensation who refuses to compromise.

” Known for using his music as a tool for telling the story of his life and his surroundings, Burna Boy’s ability to weave tales of love and educate listeners on politics and expressions of vulnerability, while creating authentic Afrobeats, is how he’s been able to capture the world’s attention,” he said.

Ajayi said in spite of the fact that Burna Boy didn’t release an album in 2021, this has still been a standout year for him, who has won a string of awards and sold-out venues across the globe.

He noted that the two-time Grammy nominee won the award for Best Global Music Album in the World Music category for his 2020-released Twice as Tall album.

”As he noted while receiving his Grammy Award, “This is a big win for Africans of my generation all over the world”.

“His recent features on chart-topping singles like Question, Ginger and Yaba Buluku reinforces his vocal appendage as an Afro heirloom that artistes the world over seek to possess on their songs.

”From the thick gold chains that adorn his neck to his vast collection of rings and gold and jewel-encrusted teeth grills, Burna Boy has also carved a fashion niche for new-generation Afro-fusion acts.

”With huge global monthly listeners, Nigerian singer, rapper, and songwriter, Burna Boy is undoubtedly one of Africa’s biggest musical exports,” he said.

In Spotify’s recently released 2021 Wrapped data, Burna Boy featured prominently among the top 10 artists in almost every listed country in Africa.

He ranked among the top 10 streamed artists in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. The lowest position in these countries is number five in Kenya.

According to the Wrapped data, his album “Twice as Tall” is among the top 10 albums for the year in Nigeria, Ghana, Tanzania, as well as Uganda, and ranked in the top 30 in Kenya.

Burna Boy’s growth in the music industry and his many successes are inspirational as every step he takes elevates him, in the music industry in Nigeria, and the continent of Africa at large.

As Burna Boy continues to march on, there’s a great possibility that the doors he walks through will be left open for the up-and-coming music artists to follow in his footsteps.

She said the confrontation degenerated into a life-threatening situation as a gun was pointed toward her stomach at close range.

Narrating her experience, She said: “Please let’s be security conscious. Nowhere is safe.

“Two days ago, which is on Sunday, I wrapped up my girlfriend’s production. I told them I was leaving for Enugu because I had a job that I was going for. They have been waiting for me for like three days. Destiny, Mary, they told me not to travel.

“I told them I needed to go because there is no movement on Monday. So, I told them I needed to go. And I left. I was in traffic at the head Bridge for like two hours. I successfully passed the traffic. I got to a route you would take to go to Awka. It is usually very fast for me, so I passed the road.

“I met another traffic there. So, I was in traffic for another one hour. It was dark. It was 8.30pm. All of a sudden, I heard a very loud bang on my side glass window. I was shocked. So, I winded down. I was like hello, then a guy came and said, ‘do you know you are on the wrong lane?’ He was trying to bend my side mirror.

“So, I started to beg him. I told him I saw other cars passing through the same lane. The next thing, I wanted to wind up and he put my hands down and came in. Brought his head inside. My PA was seated beside me. His partner went to the other side of the window. So, the guy brought his head inside the car and said, if you make any noise, I will shoot you.

“He brought a gun and pointed at my stomach and told me to bring out everything that I have. He said I should give him my phone. I told him to take money instead of my phone because he would not be able to use the iPhone.

“I brought money out, as I was giving it to him. He said I should tell my brother to bring out all the money he has. I told him the PA is not with any money. I begged them after they threatened to kill me.”
