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.
