Afro-fusion maestro Burna Boy has taken over the kingdom with his style and music.
However, in a recent interview with Africa’s Finest, a fashion magazine by Guaranty Trust Bank, Burna Boy opened up about lots of things.
About his fashion brand
“I try to do what makes me feel like I’m swaggy, it could be a named brand or not.
It just has to make me feel good. It just has to be different.
“For me, if it’s not different, then I don’t feel good,”
“I could go somewhere wearing a shirt, and if I see someone wearing the same shirt, I’ll take it off and just be shirtless!
“I’m working on it as we speak. It’s my ‘merch’ from my tours but the design is really giving out what I would wear.
“If I were to wear what I’m wearing right now, It would be all Burna Boy, it would be all my design.
That’s basically it! It would be my designs on clothes that I like.
I’d describe it as ‘Reckless & Sweet’.”
Meanwhile, he also reveals his love for comic books inspired his stage name, and he looks forward to working with Virgil Abloh and Louis Vuitton.
About his music and his inspiration, Burna Boy said:
“I had a lot of musical influence growing up, from my grandfather’s Highlife and Afrobeat collection to my dad who gave me my first reggae CD.
That’s why I call my genre Afro-Fusion, it’s a concoction of different elements of sound.”
While his first single after his Outside album, ‘Gbona” is still the talk of the town, Tiny Entertainment rapper YCee, thinks Burna Boy deserves the artist of the year award.
