Burna Boy is best artiste of 2019 but still small to Davido, Wizkid – Multi Lord
Hip-hop, rap and trap singer, rapper, music producer and songwriter and co-owner of the record label, Sound Gang, Egwuonwu Chukwuka known in the music industry as Multi Lord has given his verdict of the Nigerian music scene in 2019.
The singer who rocked the music scene in 2019 with the single ‘$150K’ and garnering 30 thousand views on YouTube in less than one month picked the African Giant and Grammy Awards Nominee, Burna Boy as the best Nigerian artiste of 2019.
In a chat with The Guardian, he said, “I will say Burna Boy because his career started off a bit controversially and many didn’t believe in him, but he proved them all wrong and put himself and Nigerian music as a whole on the map this 2019 more than any other artist. So, for me, I will say he’s the best Nigeria has to offer this 2019. The awards he won this year is a testimony of his greatness this year plus he got a Grammy nomination for his efforts.”
But when asked if Burna Boy can be considered as superior to the duo of Wizkid and Davido, the Igbinedion University graduate turned singer and rapper beat a retreat, saying Burna Boy may have had an awesome year but still a long way from standing shoulder to shoulder with the pair.
“As for Burna Boy in comparison to Wizkid and Davido I believe their (Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy) music all get the same buzz or attention at the moment but Wiz and David are indisputably ruling the Nigerian music scene considering the number of years they’ve been at the top. So yes. They, Wizkid and Davido are the kings of afrobeat/pop music in Nigeria,” he said.
Multi Lord has worked with renowned musical artists and producers like DJ Coublon, KirkoDrilz, Hitman etc. He has written, produced and co-produced viral hit songs like Dolla $ign, $150K, Never Race etc. He also released a total of 3 singles off his forthcoming EP this year and an official music video for one of the singles titled ‘$150K’ that has racked up 30,000views in about one month.
