Below is our Best Nigerian Albums & EPs pick of 2019
1 African Giant – Burna Boy
Damini Ogulu better known by his stage name Burna Boy undoubtedly has the best body of work by a Nigerian artiste in 2019. The Atlantic Records act found a way to serve R&B, Hip Hop, Dancehall and of course Afrobeat on his fourth studio album. There isn’t a dull moment throughout the 17-track album. The ‘African Giant‘ was in November nominated for a Grammy award in the Best World Music Album, hopefully, it wins this category at the forthcoming Grammys.
