One act who may not have done so well in staying away from controversies is Burna Boy. In the past, he has been tagged as impetuous, with complaints of him not showing up for performances, rehearsals and sound checks and was reported to be difficult to control and manage by his former label, Aristokrat Records.
His detest for bloggers is also very obvious after he expressed his displeasure and publicly threatened to hospitalize any who writes *hit about him. Burna Boy is also very blunt on social media when it comes to matters that concerns him.
However, despite the media has fed off his antics and may have created a bleak image about him, his musical ingenuity is one that we can’t help but admire. Seamlessly blending elements from Raggae/Dancehall, Hip-hop and RnB, Afro-beat and Afro-pop with themes that are quite sensual such as Rock Your Body, Inspirational such as Hallelujah and one that drives socio-consciousness as you would hear in his hit track, Soke, Burna Boy delivers in production, vocals, and lyrically as well.
With his new release Déjà vu, Burna Boy shifts our focus off his latest controversy relating to his involvement in the assault and robbery attack of Mr 2kay and makes us appreciate and enjoy his rich talent.
Burna Boy infuses components of the Afro-beat genre with the Horns, drums and bass guitar synchronized to produce this enchanting tune which is clearly influenced by the music legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti as he reminisces over a familiar situation with his love interest. It’s like a Déjà vu.
Déjà vu was produced by Chopstix and the captivating video was shot and directed by Clarence Peters.
