Burna Boy: Singer recognized by Spotify in its new afro hub takeover artistes list

Burna Boy joins Wizkid as artistes listed on music streaming platform, Spotify's new Afro hub takeover artistes.

Burna boy continues to enjoy global recognition following the fine run he has had so far in 2018 since the release of his album, ”Outside.”

In a bid to create a global brand representative of hits from all countries around the world, international music streaming platform, Spotify’s global cultures editorial team has launched a new Afro Hub recognizing Burna Boy as one of the leading artistes on the Afrobeats scene.

A key feature of the Afro Hub is the playlist takeovers from artistes like Major Lazer, Burna Boy, Jacob Banks, Wizkid, and Bas & Mereba.


This will allow Burna Boy to create a playlist of his favorite songs under the Afro Hub, which will then be featured as a Spotify highlight. The announcement coincides with a 3-month YouTube campaign that focuses on Burna Boy as a global artiste on the rise.

The Global Cultures initiative exists to raise the profile of international music, and the new Afro Hub will include several tiers of content including news, podcasts and playlists such as African Heat (Top Hits), Peppeh (Early Bets), Gold Mine (Classics) and We Everywhere (X-Overs/Diaspora Hits), and playlists which will highlight the continent’s best tracks by region.

Burna Boy has enjoyed a renaissance with his music that has seen him take his ‘Life On The Outside’ tour to cities in the United States and the UK.
