All Eyes on Me

Prior to expanding his reach internationally, Burna Boy worked with number of South African artists who saw in Burna hitmaker.

Around 2014, Burna Boy developed reputation as 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.

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.

The song even cleared Burna’s name in SA, he had previously been into political altercation with some citizens of the country.

The catchy smash tune “Sponono” combines the talents of Cassper Nyovest and Madumane from South Africa with 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.

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.
