“The Redemption EP is a celebration of the 90’s and his mixed roots. Produced by longtime friend and collaborator Eric LeriQ Utere. It showcases his incredible versatility as an artist, fusing Trap, Dancehall and Afrobeat sounds seamlessly.” – Emma Stevens
It’s impossible to talk about Afrobeats and not hear Burna’s name. Merging the sounds from across the lands he’s worked with Sean Paul, D’Banj, Krept and Konan, Wizkid, Mr Eazi and many many more.
He’s especially drawn comparisons to Fela Kuti, which is a huge compliment and even more personal for Burna, as his Grandfather managed Fela.
“Redemption” is available for download on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Music Plus, Boom Player and Google Play.
