Singer-songwriter and Nigerian pop star, Burna Boy, has signed with performing rights organization SESAC for direct U.S. representation.
Burna Boy recently released his fifth studio album Twice As Tall, executive produced by Ogulu, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Bosede Ogulu.
It was the follow-up to 2019’s African Giant, which nabbed Burna Boy a Grammy nomination this year for Best World Music Album.
Burna Boy’s U.S. stardom took off only recently, thanks in part to collaborations with American music stars including Coldplay’s Chris Martin (“The Monsters You Made”) and Sam Smith (“My Oasis”).
He was also featured on last year’s Lion King soundtrack The Gift, curated by Beyoncé.
“With his empowering lyrics and enrapturing beats, it’s no surprise that Burna Boy is leading the way for Afro-fusion throughout the world,” said SESAC senior director of creative services Mario Prins, Sr. “His music and African roots are deeply felt—finding its way into every aspect of American Music.”
