Burna Boy, D'Banj, 2Baba and Larry Gaaga Team Up on New Track 'Baba Nla'

Check out this massive new collaboration from the afrobeats titans.

Afrobeats titans unite on this massive new track from Nigerian artist Larry Gaaga.

After dropping bangers featuring the likes of Davido and Wande Cole, the musician returns with "Baba Nla" a chilled out track featuring heavyweights 2Baba, D'Banj and afrofusion star Burna Boy.

It's a huge collaboration which sees the trio flexing over the keyboard-heavy beat. Burna Boy carries the track as he sings the chorus and delivers a catchy and energetic opening verse. 2Baba comes in next, providing a smoothed out second verse. D'Banj shines with a harmonica solo near the end and a few of his signature ad-libs.


It's quite a treat to hear these artists link up on one track, we're certainly here for more collaborations from the veterans and the leaders of the new wave afrobeats sound.

Listen to "Baba Nla" below.
