Burna Boy was the first to use live band in Afrobeats – Ruger

Budding singer and songwriter, Ruger has claimed that superstar musician, Damini “Burna Boy” Ogulu introduced the use of live band into Afrobeats performance.

The ‘Asiwaju’ crooner stated that before Burna Boy started using live band, most Afrobeats artistes perform with DJ sets on stage.

Speaking in a recent chat with Billboard alongside his rival turned friend, BNXN, he argued that the ‘Last Last’ crooner made live performance “enjoyable.”

Ruger said: “Before Burna Boy started this live band thing most Afrobeats Act would just go on stage with their DJs and bounce, Burna boy makes live performance enjoyable.

“I don’t care if they give Burna Boy his flowers or not, but we the youngins from Nigeria know what he has done.”
