Damini Ogulu, Nigeria’s Afrofusion singer better known as Burna Boy, has put out a new track entitled ‘Money Play’ — on the eve of Christmas.
The song, released in the early hours of Tuesday, comes ahead of his possible win at the 2020 Grammys and after ‘African Giant,‘ his last studio album won several awards in 2019.
The track also comes ahead of his performance as the headlining act for Flytime’s Christmas Day concert in an event set to attract a deluge of prominent individuals from across the country.
Burna Boy has made impressive career strides in recent times, having gained global recognition for his face-off with Coachella organizers over the writing of his name in small fonts.
The 28-year-old Afrofusion star recently snagged the ‘Best Male artiste in West Africa’ category at the recently held 2019 All African Music Awards (AFRIMA).
‘Collateral Damage’, a track off his 2019 album, also made Jay-Z’s 2019 playlist, among other critically acclaimed works by eccentric artistes from across the globe.
He was, however, involved in a controversy, which led to the cancellation of a South African show he was to headline after he refused to retract his words in reaction to xenophobic attacks on Nigerians.
