Burna Boy’s nickname is ‘Odogwu’. But the question is why is Burna Boy called Odogwu?

Well, it all started when he released a song titled Odogwu. The music video of the song carried the theme of ‘kingship and authority’.

Soon after the song became a street anthem, people started calling Burna Boy, Odogwu.

This was how he got the name Odogwu.

Apparently, Burna also calls himself ‘The African Giant’ and Odogwu means ‘leader, warrior, hero or a man of greatness’.

So the Odogwu name is to accord the ‘YE’ hitmaker with his influence in the Nigerian music industry.

Indeed, he is one of the most successful musicians Nigeria can boast of. He has won a Grammy in 2021. And in 2022, he got several nominations.

Aside from this, he has won several other coveted awards. This is why we call Burna Boy Odogwu.
