Afro Rap Superstar Burna Boy Remembers Late Rap Pioneer Sidhu Moose Wala And Virgil Abloh On New Single ‘Big 7’

Afro Rap superstar Burna Boy, born Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu MFR, has returned with a new single. Titled “Big 7”, the hard-hitting Afrorap record is produced by Danitello, MD$, Mike Wavvs, Otis and Super Miles and arrives amidst an unprecedented rise in Boy’s influence over the global rap scene.

Notably, Burna Boy remembered the late Punjabi Hip-Hop pioneer Sidhu Moose Wala and Louis Vuitton‘s former Menswear Director Virgil Abloh on the affecting single.

While the late Moose Wala continues to be one of the most prolific Punjabi emcees across the globe, Abloh passed away in 2021 after a prolonged battle with Cardiac Angiosarcoma. Often touted as one of the most influential fashion designers of our times, Abloh served as the first African-American Creative Director of Louis Vuitton.

For the Boy, the “Big 7” single serves as the follow-up to “Sittin’ On Top of The World” featuring 21 Savage which the “African Giant” released within hours after his historic live set in London in June.

This isn’t the first time that Burna Boy has paid his tributes to Moosa. While Boy dropped his guest verse on Moose Wala’s third posthumous single “Mera Na”, the Nigerian maestro gave Moosa his flowers during his historic live set at London stadium.

Performing as part of his ‘Love, Damini’ tour, which arrives after the release of his top-selling sixth studio album “Love Damini”, Boy sold out the 80,000-capacity London stadium and performed some of his most influential rap records and an unreleased single with J Hus.

Ever since his death, Moose Wala continues to be remembered by global rap’s tall figures including Drake, BurnaTion Wayne and MIST and British rap superproducer Steel Banglez.

Earlier this year, Birmingham’s legendary woman emcee Stefflon Don visited Moose Wala’s home in Mansa, Punjab on his birthday. During her brief stay, Don paid her respects to the slain rapper’s father Balkaur Singh Sidhu and his mother Charan Kaur Singh.

Moose Wala is slated to join Banglez for another posthumous verse.

Reportedly, Steel Banglez will release “Attached” featuring Sidhu Moose Wala & U.K. Rap pioneer Fredo later this year. Further, U.K.’s legendary woman emcee Stefflon Don is gearing up for “Dilemma” with the slain rapper.

Most recently, Moose Wala linked up with Indian Hip-Hop royalty Divine on “Chorni”.

Upon its release, the flagrant single became the highest charting Indian rap record on Billboard Hot 100 Canada.

Rest in Peace, Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu.
