African Giant album maker and Grammy-nominated singer Damini Ogulu, known professionally as Burna Boy, has released his first single for the year 2020 titled “Odogwu”.

To say the artiste is talented will be an understatement, as “Odogwu” thus proves that Burna is ready for 2020.


“When I reach Igbo land them calling me Odogwu. As I enter the town I put am for Agu, and Nobody can stop you because we dey fly pass oh, over any obstacle calling me Odogwu”, says the lyrics of the chorus.
