Dancehall artist Burna Boy is currently on a media tour in London in preparation for his October 1st Homecoming Concert. Celebrating his 24th birthday, the Lagos based artist released a new video ‘Realest’ off his Redemption EP. He also premiered his new single ‘ Pree Me’ on Julie Adenuga’s Apple Beats 1 radio show- becoming the first Nigerian act to do so.
Burna Boy relocated to Nigeria in 2010 when he was reportedly banned after he was arrested for his involvement in a gang related stabbing while studying there. Burna Boy never publicly acknowledged the incident but he has been vocal about the lessons he learned.
“Relocating to Nigeria made me find myself”. “It made me understand life more and made me see the bigger picture of the world in the grand scheme of things. It helped me recreate myself.” AfroBeat360
