Here are his Top 5 major collaborations with South African artists.
All Eyes on Me
Around 2014, Burna Boy developed a reputation as a master of anthemic hooks, and “All Eyez On Me” continues the Summer rap tradition with powerful but approachable bars, an infectious tune, and an upbeat sound. Burna Boy established his position as Africa’s versatile monarch, at home wherever, when he dropped that hook for Eyes.
Master KG scored two huge singles in Nigeria with “Skeleton Dance” and subsequently “Jerusalema.” We were moved by the philosophical perspective in KG’s music and the healing qualities of the House production in our homes, on dance floors, and even in our headphones.
Burna Boy, who is never one to pass up an excellent tune, got on the “Jerusalama” remix. When the song was released, South Africans and Nigerians both fell in love with it.
In 2015, shortly after shutting down the internet with a diss track at his fellow rappers, AKA released a collaboration featuring Burna boy, Khuli Chana & Yanga. Everyone on the track delivered mostly African Giant despite is short verse.
Amapiano is currently regarded as one of the most profitable African sounds, and Kabza De Small is one of its pioneers.
In 2020, he released the album I Am The King Of Amapiano: Sweet And Dust, which features musicians from all around Africa and is a multi-hour listen deemed a “creative landmark” by music critic Ayo Dennis Peter.
The catchy smash tune “Sponono” combines the talents of Cassper Nyovest and Madumane from South Africa with Wizkid and Burna Boy from Nigeria.
Given Burna Boy’s renown for versatility, it makes sense that he fit into this record perfectly and was arguably the best feature.
Doc Shebeleza (Remix)
Rapper Cassper Nyovest from South Africa had one of the most popular songs on the continent around 2014. He would previously collaborate with famed American MC Talib Kweli on another remix, but he could not help but include two of Nigeria’s sickest rappers with the flows, didn’t he?
M.I. and Burna Boy both contributed to the remix, with Burna Boy contributing the most, which is impressive given that he is not actually a rapper.
