If you’ve found us here from our progenitor In Bed With Maradona, you will probably already know of Musa Okwonga. Now based in Berlin, he’s teamed up with producer Krisz Kreuzer to form BBXO.
Future blues, they call it, sitting “between spoken word and rap, between politics and pop”. Okwonga is British of Ugandan origin, his immediate family escapees of Idi Amin’s reign of terror, and it’s this journey that informs BBXO’s debut single. Kreuzer’s instrumentals are a perfect foil for Okwonga’s dulcet tones and we hope this is only the first of a long collaboration.
