Nigerian Afrofusion singer, songwriter and hitmaker BNXN (fka BUJU) drops a video for the lead single from his “Bad Since 97” EP, “In My Mind.” Directed by Troy Roscoe, the clean-cut video follows a dream-like sequence that quickly becomes a nightmare as the truth unfolds. Taken from the highly acclaimed project, “Bad Since 97” – which features WizKid, Olamide and Wande Coal – ‘In My Mind’ was also performed recently on COLORS and has already racked up over 500k views.
Since dropping his “Sorry I’m Late” EP late last year, BNXN has gone from strength to strength and is now one of Nigeria’s most recognisable voices achieving success both within the continent and internationally. From selling out his debut show in London to reaching 38 in the official UK charts with his single “Propeller” alongside UK rapper Dave on Jae5, he has solidified his status as a hitmaker. His single “Finesse” also broke into the official UK charts, peaking at 52 and was recently added to Barrack Obama’s summer playlist. Always with one eye on the UK scene, his recent collaborations with M Huncho, Dave, Jae5, TSB and Juls further cement his reputation as the king of melodies and hooks and BNXN has now dropped his own project and the features are a testament to his talent and growing reputation. In the midst of an extensive European tour, BNXN is celebrating getting to the point where his future is in his own hands.
So far in his journey, he has collaborated with Wizkid, Zlatan, Burna Boy, Darkoo, LADIPOE, Pheelz, M Huncho, Jae5, and Dave but as a solo artist, he has developed a fiercely individual sound. BNXN’s most striking instrument is his voice which transports and transfixes you, makes you forget reality, and confirms why he’s making his mark globally. With the “In My Mind” video generating more hype surrounding his name, BNXN is gearing up for his “Bad Since 97” headline show next month at the O2 Indigo in London, a momentous occasion and will undoubtedly end his year on a huge high.
