About Guvna B
East-London rapper/author Isaac Borquaye (aka Guvna B) is notable for his uplifting lyrics, focus on Christianity, and blend of grime and gospel.
Born in June of 1989, Borquaye began his career in 2008, with a debut album called The Narrow Road. Right off the bat he was rewarded for his efforts, picking up best gospel act at both The Gospel Music Awards and The Urban Music Awards in 2009, followed by another win at the MOBO Awards the following year. His follow-up album, 2011's Next Ting 140, saw further success, allowing him to launch a clothing label, Allo Mate, in 2013. Over the next few years he would release two more albums, 2013's Odd One Out and 2015's Secret World, alongside a couple of extra wins at The Urban Awards and the MOBO Awards. His first book was published in 2017. Titled Unpopular Culture, it railed against the status quo by encouraging people to live happy, fulfilling lives by being themselves. Ever prolific, he put out two more albums over the next three years, 2018's Hands Are Made for Working and 2020's Everywhere + Nowhere. ~ Liam Martin
