Akin Busari Returns With Heartfelt Summer Anthem – Number One: Originality is at the forefront of everything for Nigeria’s own Akin Busari, who over the course of his 16 year career has constantly pushed the musical envelope. He mixes genres and styles to concoct a unique blend of Afrobeats, Hip Hop, R&B and reggae. On top of this, Busari’s diverse background has also helped in shaping his own distinctive style, setting him apart from his counterparts.
Busari isn’t afraid to be honest and open in his lyrical content and his latest offering isn’t any different. ‘Number One’, made with close friend and super producer DJ Coublon, was inspired by the melodies Busari would sing to his lady while on a trip to Lagos.
The song is an ode to the love that is present in his current relationship and is a true reflection of his skill as a songwriter. This beautiful sentiment is accompanied by a steady afrobeats rhythm provided by Coublon and gorgeous melodic riffing from Busari himself. ‘Number One’ is a sweet summer anthem that will be in heavy rotation.
