BADI, Facetious Dandy, Troublemaker, African of the Future and Multifaceted Artist.

 

Born in Brussels of Congolese parents, Badi began his musical career exploring Belgian-Congolese history through incisive writing, an important cultural work that won him several awards.

 

2020 sees the release of Badi's second album, Trouble Fête. On his next two-headed album, Badi takes on, with this ease so typical of him, the figure of a troublemaker thanks to his committed lyrics which he poses with phlegm on the cutting-edge and avant-garde productions of Boddhi Satva, pioneer of the "Ancestral Soul" movement.

This next album will be released on Batakari, a brand new collaborative imprint from Boddhi Satva and BBE Music founder Peter Adarkwah.
