Music skill seems to run in the family: Lagos star Burna Boy’s younger sister is also an artist and she has just released a track ahead of a debut album later this year. 

Nissi is a 22-year old singer unlike her rapper brother. Her single that dropped yesterday samples Fela Kuti classic Teacher Don’t Teach Me Nonsense and is a politically-conscious ode to many issues happening right now.

She describes ‘bombs going off like it’s a celebration/What a contradiction’ and urges people to be politically aware: ‘We don’t talk about that freedom/But what is the outcome if we don’t see past that mirror?’

Have a listen here:

You’ll have to wait until October to hear the rest of her album, called Downtown. Nissi will also be a support act on October 1 for Burna Boy’s London concert.
