Nigeria: Slim Burna Pushes 'I'm On Fire' Mixtape

Multi-genre musician and record producer Gabriel Halliday aka Slim Burna has just unveiled the official release date and cover art for his highly anticipated mixtape, "I'm On Fire".

The "Oya Na" singer is planning to treat fans to his favorite dancehall hits on his upcoming 15-track effort, which will be released on his 25th birthday, April 11.

The mixtape is meant to be a free gift for fans, and will feature guest spots from Attitude (of Dem Mama Soldiers), Squeeze, Bukwild Da Ikwerrian, Pi Piego (of Ruud Boiz), Knowledge and many more.

Slim Burna first hit the news in 2009 when he released a re-make of "Oyoyo" (a track originally recorded by Jay Martins) which was featured in several mixtapes put together by Naija DJs Coalition.

Slim was born in Essex, UK. He returned to Nigeria with his family when he was just two years old and grew up in Port-Harcourt where he is currently based.

Although there have been some previously released gems in the past years, Slim says "I'm On Fire" is the best thing I've done lately. I've grown both lyrically and vocally, my style has improved and I feel like I have more control of my abilities now"

The mixtape cover art pictures Slim Burna engulfed in flames.
