Written by News Desk on April 28, 2022
Damini Ogulu, the Nigerian Grammy award-winning singer better known as Burna Boy, has teased the release date for his new album.
The ‘African Giant’ crooner spoke about his numerous successes when he recently stopped by The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, the South African television host.
The singer hinted that his sixth studio album would be dropping on July 2, 2022 — to celebrate his 31st birthday.
Noah had asked the singer — who had teased the album on his social media pages — when the project would be due for release.
The ‘Monsters You Made’ crooner who didn’t give a definite release date, said: “The album is gonna come out on a day everyone celebrates for themselves when it’s their own day.”
The 30-year-old also confirmed that he would be featuring Ed Sheeran, another Grammy-winning singer, on the album.
Burna Boy started to gain fame after releasing ‘Like to Party’, the lead single from his debut album ‘L.I.F.E’ (2013).
In 2021, the singer set a record in Nigeria after his album ‘Twice As Tall’ won the ‘Best World Music Album’ category at the Grammys.
Burna Boy has established himself as a household name in the music industry with several awards and acclaimed albums.
He has also been in the news for controversial reasons. The ‘Twice As Tall’ singer recently left tongues wagging after claiming he is richer than Wizkid and Davido.
Burna Boy will on April 28 make history as the first Nigerian singer to headline a concert at Madison Square Garden in New York.
