Burna Boy’s new single, Kilometre is produced by award-winning Nigerian multi-talented producer, Chopstix, who is known for his versatility and flexible style that highlights hip-hop and dancehall, creating hybrid sounds from a blend of different genres of music. One of the most successful African artistes on the continent and known for his indigenousness, Burna Boy runs wild and free on Kilometre which he wrote while he was in Ghana; a song that chronicles his journey, detailing how far he’s come in his career and so, slaps different. But then again, the Afrofusion musician is one to keep pushing the creative envelope.

Shot in Lagos and directed by the prolific Clarence Peters, the art direction is flawlessly synchronized with every pulsating rhythm of the song, transforming the Kilometre visual into a racy, exciting piece full of visual effects that speak of crystal clear professionalism. With this visual, the multi-award-winning Afro-fusion musician and Grammy award winner tells us everything we need to know about his musical state of mind, chapter and verse.

Unapologetically himself, Burna Boy raises his game with Kilometre making a masterpiece of this song which is like a balm of help in tough times; what stands out in ‘Kilometre’ is the creation of a musical balance that just makes you feel good listening to it.
