BURNA BOY’S ”HEAVEN’S GATE” WITH GRAMMY-NOMINATED LILY ALLEN MAKING WAVES IN THE UK (WATCH)

Oluwa Burna as he is fondly called by fans is in the best form of his life right now. From the amicable settlement and release from detention over robbery allegations against him by Mr 2Kay, to news of claims that he wrote 5 songs on Drake’s “More Life” album (which Drake hasn’t come out to dispute), to being the only featured artiste on Grammy-nominated rock band,  Fall Out Boy’s recently released album, on the track ”Sunshine Riptide”, to his successful album listening party in London, attended by such industry heavyweights as Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Mr Eazi etc, to the massive airplay the single “Heaven’s Gate” with British Pop singer Lily Allen, off his “Outside” album is generating all over the world. Burna Boy’s vocals in Jamaican ”patois” language and Lily Allen’s peculiar singing style blends perfectly with the  dance hall instrumental of the song. The video which was shot in London is simply a fine blend of cockney vibes and Indian rhythm that gives the song a more diverse appeal. Suffice it to say that the song has Grammy written all over it.

 

I won’t be surprised if this song makes it to the summit of the UK Billboard a couple of weeks from now. It is already making waves in the UK, Nigeria, South Africa, Venezuela, Brazil and other parts of America.

Burna Boy’s real names are Damini Ogulu. He grew up in Rivers State but later  relocated to Lagos. He attended Montessori International School and Corona, Agbara for his secondary education.
