If you want to define how blessed a person can be within 365 days, Nigerian Musicians Burna Boy, Zlatan Ibile and Naira Marley are good examples to point to.
In the case of Zlatan Ibile, he hit the limelight in 2018 but he has achieved what hundreds of others before him can only dream of.
He is a Grammy nominee for featuring on Burna Boy’s album “Africa Giant”. He has now found his way to the prestigious video game Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) courtesy Burna Boy’s ‘Killin Dem’.
The case of Naira Marley is even funnier; the more the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) drag him for alleged cybercrime and fraudulent act, the more the guy keeps winning in the industry.
In less than two years in the industry, the musician has created a cult following known as Marlians.
His hit single, ‘Opotoyi’ also made it to the latest update of the GTA 5 tracklist. Not only that, the single is at number 27 on Complex UK’s Best Songs of 2019.
Now to the ‘Africa Giant’ himself, the year 2019 has been a total madness for Burna Boy. His song making it to the playlist of GTA 5 is just one of many greatness Burna Boy achieved this year.

In less than 7 years of a musical career, he is a Grammy nominee, sold out the biggest arenas in the world, featured on some of the most prominent television shows in the world; and won some of the most prestigious awards the music business has to offer.
His hit song, “Collateral Damage” off his “Africa Giant” album, also made it on the tracklist for the latest Need For Speed video game. What more can one add than to say ‘Gbese’.
