“I wrote 5 songs for Drake in his ‘More Life’ album”- Burna Boy

Nigeria Reggae-Dancehall act, Burna Boy who is one of the most celebrated artistes and song writers in Nigeria has opened up on how he wrote 5 songs for Drake in one of his albums.

He made this revelation during the listening party for his forthcoming album titled “Outside.” which held on Sunday January 21st, 2017 at the We´re´ House in Lagos.

While speaking on how he met Drake in London and how meeting him resulted to their partner on the Canadian Rapper’s “More Life” project, Burna Boy spoke extensively on the level of hard work he had to put into getting materials for Drake’s project.

In his words;

“I worked on 5 new songs for the project, and submitted them all.” he said

According to him, after getting confirmation from Drake’s team that one of the songs he wrote titled “More Life” will make the album but came out in different format and turned out to be the name of the whole album, he did not get deserved recognition and credit for writing a song that later broke the streaming charts on Billboard.

Burna Boy would later feature on the outro of the album ‘Get It Together’, which was a remake of South African DJ, Black Coffee, and Bucie’s 2010 single Superman. The new version had UK singer Jorja Smith, singing about fixing a strained relationship. Burna Boy’s More Life was reworked and sampled at the outro of the record in an almost unrecognisable form.

“They told me they had picked it, but when the song came out it was…chopped.” Burna Boy said.

Burna Boy however said he has moved on from that episode and stated that the original version of the More Life song he wrote would be on his forthcoming album “Outside,” which is set for release on January 26th, 2018.

Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Explodes Over #LekkiMassacre Of #EndSARS Protesters

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has condemned the attack on peaceful #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city.

It was reported earlier that soldiers of the Nigerian Army invaded a peaceful protest at Lekki toll gate on Tuesday evening.

Reacting to the attack on the peaceful protesters in Lagos in a tweet, Kanu, a director of Radio Biafra, said it is “shocking that Southern Nigerians are tolerating a Northern Muslim” President Muhammadu Buhari “using the Army to kill unarmed Southern #EndSARS protesters in Lagos” on a “Southern soil”.

The apparently furious IPOB leader wondered if “Southern Christian President” would ever “contemplate killing unarmed Northern Muslim protesters in Kano”, northern Nigeria.

Kanu tweeted: It’s shocking that Southern Nigerians are tolerating a Northern Muslim @NGRPresident using the Army to KILL unarmed Southern #EndSARS protesters in Lagos, a Southern soil? Would a Southern Christian President ever contemplate killing unarmed Northern Muslim protesters in KANO?”
