OAP Shade ladipo dishes on why she loves Burna boy.
Shade Ladipo, a radio host on Smooth 98.1FM dishes about her man crush, Burna Boy.
She shares with her thousands of followers why she loves the 'Check and balance' singer.
Burna has a unique music style (which sometimes of late seems a little diluted) but it pops up when he's not too busy trying to please the 'jollof' crowd.
His fashion sense is weird but he has clearly defined and owned his 90's acquired style and honestly it works for him because he stays true to it and almost never strays from it (a feature of a successful brand is been able to follow through with chosen branding etc).
His music is fluid and real, it doesn't come across as forced or artificial (no need to compare with anyone even though i would like to) .
Apart from his dress sense and general demeanor, he doesn't seem to be part of the general pop artistes especially the young ones e.g, he seems to have carved a separate niche for himself without isolating anyone/group in particular (very smart).
Almost every song he's on is a hit but i especially love songs where he doesn't feature anyone because he seems most comfortable when he sings/raps (or whatever he does) alone .
As always this is all my opinion of course .
