Nigerian Afrofusion singer and hitmaker BNXN fka BUJU joins forces with the legendary Wande Coal to release, ‘KENKELE’, the first single taken from his upcoming project, ‘Bad Since 97’. Produced by SAK PASE (Kanye West, Jay Z and Rihanna) ‘KENKELE’
instantly uplifts as BNXN and Coal sing about gratitude and fulfillment, with the chorus repeating “living my best life”.
The vibrant video was shot by award-winning director DK (Wizkid, Skepta, Burna Boy) and sees both artists arrange to meet at a spa for the day. Reminiscent of a 70’ Bruce Lee Kung
Fu film, we witness BNXN and Coal come to blows with a squad of envious troublemakers.
Since dropping his ‘Sorry I’m Late’ EP late last year, BNXN has gone on to become one of Nigeria’s most promising voices achieving international success. From selling out his debut show in London to reaching 54 in the official UK charts with his latest single, ‘Finesse’, he has solidified his status as a
hitmaker. Always with one eye on the UK scene, his recent collaboration with M Huncho was met with huge praise, only to be followed up with Dave teasing a collab on his socials earlier this week. Now known as the king of melodies and hooks with an unmistakable voice to match, BNXN is ready to channel everything into his own work to make his mark.
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, and M Huncho 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 waves globally. With his ‘Bad Since 97’ EP dropping in August and his status growing daily with festival performances and collaborations, it’s impossible to ignore the impact BNXN is having.
