Burna Boy makes New York Times best songs’ list of 2019

Nigerian musician, Damini Ogulu also known as Burna Boy has made it to New York Times ‘The 54 Best Songs of 2019’ for his song ‘Anybody.’

The first two on the list of 54 are Lizzo for the song ‘Cuz I Love You’ and FKA twigs for ‘Cellophane.’

Others include Tame Impala for ‘It Might Be Time,’ Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, ‘Bright Horses,’ Angel Olsen, ‘Lark,’ Joe Henry for ‘The Fact of Love’ among others.

The US-based newspaper said about Burna Boy: “The calm, husky tone and understated beats of Burna Boy, from Nigeria, belie a determination to unite Africa and its diaspora. This track from his 2019 album, ‘African Giant,’ is both insinuating and ambitious.”

Burna Boy has had a stellar year winning awards and headlining concerts. His African Giant album received a Grammy Awards nomination in November.
