Burna Boy has just been so extraordinary these past years, and I believe that’s why most of us fell so deep in love with him.
An artist that emerges as the “Best artiste of the year” for 2 consecutive years after being an underground artiste since he emergence into the industry. Within a short time, Burna Boy who was only relatively known as a dancehall star became a household name. As he transitioned into the hottest Afrobeats star, on the planet.
You all will agree with me that it was Burna Boy that broke the massive dominancy of Wizkid and Davido, just like Modric puts a break to that of Ronald-Messi‘s in the football world. From 2011-2017, every other artiste was virtually behind Wizkid and Davido, but then the YBNL CEO, Olamide was also a formidable force during the time.
HOW BURNA BOY TOOK OVER FROM WIZKID & DAVIDO
Fast forward to how Burna Boy enjoys a massive breakout after a track titled “Ye” from his “Outside” album garnered enormous international attention after Kanye West drops a carbon named track “Ye” as well… The aftermath was historical.
Leaping at the opportunity thrown at him, then Burna Boy became a wildfire with a gigantic smoke then he caught everyone’s attention in the early period of 2018, and he continues on the hit-making pedestals as he gave us some wonderful songs like; Gbona, On The Low, Heaven’s Gate and others.
The International dominancy and the hit tracks he has given him the needed edge to floor both Wizkid and Davido in almost all award he was nominated alongside the former Afrobeats Rep.
HOW BURNA BOY BECAME 2019 ARTISTE OF THE YEAR
To continue his amazing musical run in 2019, Burna Boy has scored quite a large number of hit tracks this year as well and he has shut down quite some numbers of notable centers around the world. Dem Wizkid no do pass like that too.
From all indications this year as well, Burna Boy is definitely everyone’s Artiste Of The Year, not even considering the fact the worthy competitors, Davido and Wizkid were on a low for almost all quarters of the year. Burna Boy kept us musically fit this 2019.
Featuring on the Beyonce’s “Lion King” album and solely having a track “Ja Ara E” to his name on that album is something that looks so Iconic to us, however Wizkid was also featured on the track and Davido was left out of it, showing Burna Boy already gaining ground over Davido in this Afrobeat movement thingy.
Hits song ranging from, Killin Dem with Zlatan, Dangote, Pull Up, Anybody and the almighty “African Giant” album cemented his rightful throne as the 2019 artiste of the year again. He took Afrobeat to the world like it has never be done before, such an energetic being.
In an industry where we have two musically active legends, Wizkid and Davido, and one once an ordinary dance-hall singer, Burna Boy came and dethrone them for 2 years in a row, isn’t that mythical?
IS HE A LEGEND NOW?
Well, in boxing when a newbie defeats a world champion, he automatically becomes the new world champion, in that vein, it is safe to tag Burna Boy a “Legend“, for un-sitting two legends for 2 years in a row.
In as much as you think he hasn’t proved himself beyond resemble doubt yet, some people already believed he has done something worthy of attaining the Legendary status.
