Nigerian singer, BOJ has released his sixteen-track, third studio album titled, ‘Gbagada Express‘.
BOJ’s third solo album, written and recorded amid the most limited phases of 2020’s lockdown, finds the alté pioneer and DRB Lasgidi alum at his most collaborative yet contemplative.
The project (named after the main highway in the area) serves not just as a transmission from his home, but also as a medium for a genuine relationship to it—a difficult concept for an artist who was born in London and reared in Lagos and has spent most of his adult life commuting between the two.

BOJ’s journey of greater self-expression, aided by a similarly diverse group of collaborators he gathered during a lockdown songwriting camp, mirrors what he sees as the evolution of the alté scene—a term he and fellow DRB alum and longtime collaborator Teezee coined in their 2014 track, “Paper,” to describe a sound and a lifestyle that can’t be pinpointed.
BOJ teams up with superstars like, Wizkid, Fireboy DML, Tiwa Savage, Davido, Mr Eazi and many more in making this project a classic.
