Meet Buju, the Burnaboy's signed Artist we've not been hearing from.

Buju, born in Lagos , Nigeria , Daniel Benson (Buju) is an Afro-Fusion Singer and Songwriter. The name ‘Buju’ is a coined acronym that stands for ‘Beauty Underneath Just Understood’. It also means "A black man like me" in Jamaican Pathos

Burna Boy is signed to Warner Music via Atlantic Records, Bad Habit and Spaceship. However, it is yet unclear if Buju becomes a part of that set-up or if he is just signed to Spaceship.

On April 16, 2020, Nigerian superstar, Burna Boy's record label announced the signing of afro-fusion artist, Buju. A statement on the label's official Instagram page, @spacecollective reads, "Please welcome our new Afro-Fusion artist @bujutoyourears #SpaceFam."

Spaceship is a label owned by Burna Boy. Key players on the label are reported to include Burna Boy, his mom and manager, Bose 'Mama Burna' Ogulu and other family members. Before Buju, Burna Boy and his sister, Nissi were already signed to the label. Nissi is a Soul, Afro-Jazz and Afro-dance act as well as a Mechanical Engineer.

In-house producers at the label include Kel P and Leriq.

Burna Boy announced the launch of his label, Spaceship on February 18, 2015. This came after his two-year deal with the Piriye 'Peedi Picasso' Isokrari owned label, Aristokrat Records ended in June 2014. A lot thought the label was going to be named Burna Boy Goons, but Burna Boy opted for Spaceship Entertainment.

We've not been hearing from Buju recently, Burna ain't saying anything about no much videos from him during this lockdown. What might be the reason?
