Award-winning Nigerian singer Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, has released his first track in 2020 and it’s a big tune ladies and gentlemen.
The song titled Odogwu, which is an Igbo word that means victorious/heroic leader, has been getting a lot of airplay since it was released a few hours ago.
From my understanding, this jam sort of talks about Burna Boy’s musical journey. From humble beginnings to being perceived as a king by his legion of fans.
This jam is really infectious. I’ve listened to it a couple of times since it was released and every time I play it, it’s like I am hearing it for the first time. Yup, it’s that good.
Burna Boy has a unique voice. Put simply, he is interesting to listen to and you might find yourself hitting the replay button a couple of times because let’s be honest, this 29-year-old musician can really sing.
He knows how to express himself in his songs. To add to that, he can control his voice. That and a bit of auto tune is the reason he sweeps ladies off their feet.
The beat and instrumentation on Odogwu are impeccable. Other than the fact that they blend well with Burna Boy’s vocals, they also make the song catchy and we have none other than Kel P to thank for that.
I absolutely love the video for this jam. It’s a masterpiece. Everything was well thought out, from the concept, styling, props, location to the scene transitioning.
Watch Odogwu below and tell us what you think.
