GRAMMY-Award-winning Nigerian artiste Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, known as Burna Boy, has made the list of Times Magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2024.

In her tribute to the artist, Beninese legend and fellow Grammy winner Angélique Kidjo writes: “Ten years ago or so, when young African musicians would come to me for advice, I would tell them, ‘You don’t need to mimic American artists! The world needs the amazing richness and beauty of our traditional African music and our culture. This land is where most of modern music comes from. This source of inspiration is inexhaustible. Its freshness and its elegance will get the world’s attention for sure.
