What is Spaceship Collective?
Burna Boy announced the launch of his label, Spaceship on February 18, 2015. This came after his two-year deal with the Piriye 'Peedi Picasso' Isokrari owned label, Aristokrat Records ended in June 2014. A lot thought the label was going to be named Burna Boy Goons, but Burna Boy opted for Spaceship Entertainment.
Before now, key players on the label were known to bee Burna Boy, his mom and manager, Bose 'Mama Burna' Ogulu and other family members. Before Buju, Burna Boy and his sister, Nissi were already signed to the label. Nissi is a Soul, Afro-Jazz and Afro-dance act as well as a Mechanical Engineer.
