28 year old Damini Ogulu popularly called Burna Boy is at the moment, probably one of the biggest artistes to have come out of Nigeria. 

With a style of music that incorporates Dancehall, Afrobeats and Rap, Burna Boy dubbed The African Giant has taken not just Nigeria and Africa, but the world by storm. Born in Port Harcourt, his family showed a huge appreciation for good music, with his grandfather Benson Idonije, a well respected journalist who managed the career of the legendary Nigerian singer Fela Anikulapo Kuti. 

In 2002, his breakout track “Like To Party” became a nationwide hit and a party anthem played in clubs all over the country.

Starting out with Aristokrat Records and an album produced by the very talented Leriq, Burna Boy stayed true to his style and didn’t try to move into the more commercially acceptable sounds other Nigerian artistes were part of.

The British media have been working overtime, churning out stories about the Royal couple, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle ever since they got together. After years of intense bullying by a rather racist media in the UK, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they would be stepping back from royal duties and will be moving to North America to earn a living on their own.
