Burna Boy and Wizkid Combine on Year-Ending “B.d’Or”

Burna Boy and Wizkid Reunite on the P2J-produced year-ending single.

Back in 2020, just before Wizkid dropped his groundbreaking body of work, Made In Lagos,’ rumours swirled on the internet that a song featuring Burna Boy would be making an appearance on the album.

The song between the duo, “Ginger,” would ultimately become one of the instantly well-received songs off the project, showcasing the brilliant contrast between Wizkid’s dulcet flow and Burna’s scene-setting delivery. 

The latest installation of their union comes on “B. d’Or,” a collaboration that was first revealed during Wizkid’s much-celebrated residency at London’s O2 Arena in London earlier in December. “B. d’Or,”  takes its name from the Ballon d’Or, a prestigious trophy for men and women football players awarded by the French weekly magazine, France Football. 

Arriving on the back of a feature on the remix of “Second Sermon,” a viral single by Ghanaian musician, Black Sherif, the upbeat, feel-good record sees Wizkid and Burna Boy proclaim their supremacy via taunting lyrics delivered in an addictive mixture of English and pidgin over an instrumental produced by P2J. 

Taking the lead here, Burna sly declares, “Omo Messi self no do pass like this/ So many things inside my jeans/ I swear down e be things.” “B. d’Or” comes after Burna Boy recently announced One Night In Space, his history-making debut appearance at Madison Square Garden slated for  April 28th, 2022. The Grammy winner will be the first Nigerian artist to headline a concert at the iconic venue.
