OGEFASH PHOTO BLOG ARTISTE OF THE YEAR 2019: BURNA BOY “TRUE STATESMAN IN TODAY’S MUSIC INDUSTRY!”

IG@ogefashblog.

 Whenever I see Burnaboy or hear about him on news media, I am forced to remember a certain character in the movie Bahubali; and that character is Bahubali himself (Acted by PRABHAS RAJU); an indian actor.

I see myself quantifying Burnaboy with all the features of Prahbas in Bahubali movie. Prahbas in the movie was as brave as a lion which took him forward, so also is Burnaboy. Prahbas walked like a tiger so does Burnaboy. Prahbas was fearless so also is Burnaboy; this is even so glaring in his face, movement, actions and words. It makes me remember a particular scene in Bahubali movie at the 1 hour 5 minutes of part 2 of the movie. In that scene, Devasena (Acted by Anushka Shetty) used a fire weapon to hit Prahbas on his chest. Prahbas stayed unmoved which emphasized his bravery. (By the way, I need to mention that I had to watch this Bahubali movie again for 6 hours just to have the glimpse of how to liken him to Burnaboy as well as get some of the pictures from the movie.

Guess what happened after I watched the movie again, I cried again!

Now let’s focus on Burnaboy alone.

Burnaboy is the true meaning of his name “Burna.” He can be likened to a “Burner” stove on a high setting/temperature/heat with over 500 degrees. What am I trying to say? Burnaboy is hot! Hot! He is not burning to death o, but he is just hot like fire; as in ogbono feli feli, odi oku, yana da zafi, il est chaud, el esta bueno in other languages.

Burnaboy is an household name that can never be referred to as a back burner but a front burner.  He is one extremely terrific talented musician that even the other talented musicians will feel jealous just hearing about him; his name, his success, possessions, fame and everything that revolves around him. Burnaboy is one artiste that fans anticipate his performance because of the vigour he puts into his performances. Burnaboy’s presence leaves the whole arena of people with a loud cheer.

Burnaboy was born Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu 28 years ago in Ahoada, Portharcourt. He was born in 1991 into the family of the Ogulus. He has two siblings, one of them is Nissi Ogulu; he is eldest of them all. His Mum and Dad- Bose and Samuel Ogulu supported his music career especially his mum. He schooled mostly in Nigeria. His education foundation can be traced to Montessori International School and Corona, Agbara. Nothing much has been heard about his undergraduate studies; where and when he studied.

Burnaboy is determined and stable which is evident in his big comeback in the music scene after it seemed like Nigerians were no longer interested in listening to his music some years back after the release of the great hit “Like to party” from the album L.I.F.E. Burnaboy did not relent in those trying periods, he continued to do that which he knows how to do best; “great music” until Nigeria and the whole world welcomed him back into the music scene.

He is not just the hottest or the rave of the moment; he is also regarded as the “Giant of Africa” . He doesn’t have to be of gigantic size to be called “Giant of Africa” but he is truly a giant when it comes to Music.

Burna boy like his counterparts has also had his share of controversies especially the year 2016/2017 he was somewhat put aside and was more like a back burner. That period, it was said that he sent some thugs to attack musician- Mr.2kay. Those men robbed Mr.2kay and tortured him badly. Funny enough, that case was swept under the carpet. Mr.2kay stopped reigning. Meanwhile that period was when Burnaboy made his comeback into the music industry, making him more popular than he was before.

Burna boy is so rich and has lots of cars and houses. He is an ambassador of many big brands such as Globacom, Nigerian Star Lager Beer Breweries Plc and so on. His net worth is estimated to worth 500 million dollars.

The first song that brought him to limelight was the song “I like to party” from the L.I.F.E album. He has five (5) albums to his credit- L.I.F.E (2013); ON A SPACESHIP (2015); REDEMPTION (2016); OUTSIDE (2018); AFRICAN GIANT (2019). He has his own record label “Spaceship Entertainment”

“Some people that hail you would tear you down; so it never mattered to me. I just do what’s true to me; that’s all. Overrate or underrate doesn’t change a thing. Truth needs no validation from ignorance”
