10 Thing Didn't Know About Burna Boy


10 Things You Didn't About Burna Boy


There’s no denying that Burna Boy has been on a winning streak lately and he’s showing no signs of stopping. He gave a stellar performance at the popular music festival Coachella, won the Best International Act award at the 2019 BET Awards and even features on Beyonce’s star studded album The Lion King: The Gift.

Damini Ogulu (born 2 July 1991), better known by his stage name Burna Boy, is a Nigerian regge-dancehall singer and songwriter. He hails from Mbiama in Ahoda West Local Government area in Rivers State. When he hit the Nigerian music scene with his first two singles, he captivated everyone with his unique blend of Nigerian hip hop, reggae and highlife.


Here are 10 things about Burna Boy that may not resonate well with majority of the people, include the following:


1. At the age of 15, Burna Boy got his first tattoo. He says his tattoos are a representation of him artistically. He has more than 12 tattoos on his body, including that of his role model the renowned Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

2. His first studio record was at Leriq Treehouse Studio Port Harcourt and his first gig on stage was in December 2010 at the Calabar Carnival.

3. He has a net worth of around $10 million. This seems to vary from site to site as though people can’t quite figure out how much he’s worth, but this seems like a fairly accurate number since he’s been a big hit on the music scene and he tends to have very lavish tastes that would only be capable with this kind of bankroll.

4. His first album sold over 50 000 copies in a day. Burna’s debut, Leaving an Impact for Eternity lived up to its title by selling like hot cakes on its first day of release.

5. His grandfather worked closely with one of Africa’s biggest musicians Fela Kuti. Show business isn’t a new phenomenon in the star’s family; his maternal grandfather managed one of his music idols Fela Kuti back in the day.

6. His collaboration with AKA and Da Les and JR is one of the biggest collaborations of his career.

7. Robbery was the first song recorded by Burna Boy, which was on the beat of “Step Back” by Freeway featuring Lil’ Wayne.

8. He is a brand ambassador for Head Honcho Clothing, a South African clothing brand.

9. He started making his own music at the age of 10.

10. He is a man with tight security around him. Whenever he returns to Nigeria, Burna is frequently mobbed by fans so it only makes sense that two armed soldiers follow the superstar around.

Ways To Make Sex Last Longer

How To Last Longer In Bed There are some things in life that, inevitably, don’t last a long time. But sex… should not be one of those things. Sure, there’s a time and place for a quickie, but for the most part, sex should be an experience that is enjoyed for as long as you and your partner want, preferably with no time limit. It’s not exactly news that it takes men less time than women to reach orgasm. And once it happens, sex is often over. After ejaculation, men go through a refractory period where they are unable to achieve another erection for a certain length of time (women have little to no refractory period). It’s normal and it varies, but it does have a way of interrupting intercourse. The only way to defer it is to delay orgasm, which is why we’ve put together a list of tips for lasting longer in bed. 1. Boost L-arginine Consumption Amino acids are the building blocks of protein.

That's why sex experts chimed in with more accurate insight about what guys  really want you to know  when the two of you climb into bed. Here are the top sex tips for women. 1. Do It With the Lights On You may be worried about what your husband thinks of your post-breast-feeding boobs, your C-section scar, or that at some point, he'll stop being attracted to you because you look a little — OK, a lot—different than you did on your wedding day. But men rarely notice your self-perceived flaws — they only become aware of them if you're preoccupied with them or go out of your way to cover up. "It's true, men are very visual," says relationship expert   Bernardo M
