Nigerian singer Buju to perform in Nairobi
‘Cold Outside’ hitmaker Buju has confirmed a working tour of Kenya.
He is set to entertain fans at the Impala Grounds on April 30 2022.
The fast rising star will be the headlining act at the first edition of Throne Fest event sponsored by Play Entertainment, Statepen East Entertainment and Taarija Enterprises.
“We are thrilled to announce the first edition of Throne Fest, featuring Nigerian sensation Buju (BNXN),” said Collins Odindo, one of the event organisers.
Buju first rose to fame with the viral hit single ‘Spiritual’ featuring Zlatan in 2019, which caught Grammy award-winning Afrobeats giant Burna Boy’s attention when he reportedly heard it in a club.
The Baby Giant, as the singer fondly refers to himself, is famed for the hit single ‘Cold Outside’, ‘Feeling’ featuring Ladipoe and latest TikTok sensation ‘Finesse’ featuring Pheelz.
Earlier in the year, the talented singer whose real name is Daniel Benson formerly known as Buju TYE was trending on social media platforms in Nigeria after he announced a change of his famed stage name.
Buju, who is considered a fast-rising afro-fusion musician, dropped the announcement via his official Twitter page as he stated that his new name would be BNXN which is pronounced as ‘Benson’, just as his real name.
There were hints that the change of name was as a result of Buju TYE being mistaken for another Jamaican singer known as Buju Banton.
BNXN, formerly known as Buju, is the fourth Nigerian artist that has changed their name. Other Nigerian artists that have changed their name in the past include 2Baba, who was formerly known as 2Face, Kizz Daniel formerly known as Kiss Daniel, Cruel Santino formerly known as Santi.
The 25-year-old, bred in Lagos, is undeniably one of the many Nigerian artists to pioneer a new legion of versatile and fearless acts who are bursting through the seams and setting their sights on a proper global takeover.
