Top Burna Boy Songs That Will Stand The Test Of Time

by John Anusie

With a recent BET Award it becomes even clearer Burna Boy is not here to play. The songster, who is in the vanguard of Nigeria’s afrobeats movement, has moved from one win to another, solidifying his place as a major name in Nigerian and African music – a giant, as he would say.

One cannot begrudge him the epithet; after all with his mouth shall a man mend his destiny. By the way, Burna Boy was recently unveiled, alongside Teni, as a brand ambassador for soft drink brand Pepsi.

Below, in no particular order, are song of Burna Boy‘s songs we are confident will stand the test of time


Released in 2018, “Gbona” shook Nigeria’s music space at the time of releases. It has been described by some as a classic. While we are loath to give it the classic tag, we can boldly say “Gbona” is one of Burna Boy‘s finer offerings to date and one that will stand the test of time.

On The Low

On The Low” is another Burna Boy track with undeniable lyrical charm. Like “Gbona,” it is a 2018 track but one that remains fresh, trending across blogs in Nigeria even as I write. “On The Low” suffuses the soul with spirit-lifting melodies.


Soke,” released in 2015, is more like a political intervention… an interrogation of Nigeria’s discombobulated state. The audacity of its message should keep this song in the nation’s memory for a long time.

Like to Party

Like to Party” is one track that should light up any party, any time, anywhere. It streams off the album “L.I.F.E – Leavin an Impact for Eternity.” Said to be the single that introduced him to the mainstream, it will stand the test of time too.
