Nigerian talented singer and 2021’s Next Rated act, Buju has finally released his highly anticipated debut EP titled “Sorry I’m Late”.
The singer broke into the music industry with his 2019 debut hit, ‘Spiritual‘ featuring Zlatan. 2020 was a slow year due to the CO-VID19 pandemic that ravaged the world, but he was able to leave an impression with ‘Lenu Remix’ featuring Burna Boy. He took on 2021 with a vengeance delivering a scene stealing performance on Poe’s ‘Feeling’. His subsequent single and features, ‘Outside’, ‘Your Body’, ‘Bling’ and ‘Cold Outside’ helped burnish his run as potentially the hottest feature artist around. As a result of this and the fact that his EP had been delayed for almost 2 years, the singer apologies with the title of his 7 track debut EP – ‘Sorry I’m Late’ which was released today October 28, 2021.
The EP, ‘Sorry I’m Late’ opens with “Daniel Benson” (produced by Timi Jay), a track that sees Buju singing about himself in full melody and rhyming with his real names. Next, “Never Stopped” also produced by Timi Jay is all about the singer saying he got more to deliver as there is still much to achieve, and revealing his music components (You’re looking at a mix of Burna Boy and 2Baba, With a sprinkle of Khalid and Frank Ocean). Buju increased the tempo of his project on the third track “Kilometer“, produced by Rexxie.
“Something Sweet” takes him back to his mid-tempo vibe. The next “Ogechukwu” which features The Cavemen brings Highlife into the Afro-fusion EP. “For Here” is Buju singing just to his lady/ Madam Juliet, and the last “I Do“, produced by Steph is a mild track which the singer use to state that he would achieve whatever he has his mind on and build a legacy.
