Unwavering grit, passion and an insatiable thirst for greatness; Burna Boy has become a symbol of inspiration for many.


The award-winning singer rose to prominence in 2012 after the release of ‘Like to Party’, a hit song off ‘L.I.F.E’, his debut studio album. He has taken the global music landscape by storm since then.

With a Grammy gong, three consecutive BET Awards, and a commanding presence across the world, the singer has continued to chart a new course for Nigerian and African artistes across the world.

After he won his first-ever Grammy in March, his message clearly demonstrates his philosophy: taking on the seemingly impossible and conquering new grounds.


“I wasn’t celebrating because of myself. It was almost as if I’ve broken a mental cycle of our people. Because our people have been very mentally oppressed to feel like they can’t do certain things and that certain things are unreachable. You are what you think, at the end of the day,” he had said.

As the ‘African Giant’ crooner clocks 30, there’s no doubt that he is poised to dominate the music industry for years to come.

Fans have since taken to social media, especially Twitter, to celebrate the music star — born on July 2, 1991 — using the hashtag #Burna30.


Burna Boy also took to his Instagram Stories to celebrate himself on his special day.

To commemorate his birthday, TheCable Lifestyle takes a look at 10 of the singer’s evergreen collection of songs.
