Nigerian Afrobeat musician, Burna Boy, whose real name is Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, is about to make his Nollywood producing debut with the upcoming movie “Three Cold Dishes.”

The film, which tackles issues related to sex trafficking, was produced by Black Mic, Martian Network, Asurf Films, Alma Productions, and Ifind.  The “Last Last” hitmaker, who along with his mother Bose Ogulu, co-founded Spaceship Films, will serve as executive producer.
