Burna Boy is back with a new single

Burna Boy is fresh off his Grammy win and has just this week released a new single ‘Kilometre’.

Released this Thursday April 29, it’s a reminder that Burna Boy is at the top of his game.

At last month’s 63rd annual Grammy awards, Burna Boy won the award for Best Global Music Album for his album ‘Twice As Tall’. Burna Boy is also the first Nigerian artist to receive back-to-back nominations in the same category, following on from his 2019 Grammy nomination for 'African Giant'.

‘Twice As Tall’ featured collaborations with Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Stormzy, Sauti Sol and Youssou N’Dour.
