BBXO is the moniker of innovative, genre-fusing duo made up of producer Krisz Kreuzer &  spoken word poet Musa Okwonga. The duo met in Berlin and after working on several projects decided to form BBXO with the aim of creating songs that explored urban socio-political issues of struggle, love, and friendship in a powerful and distinctive way. Their latest record titled “Firestorm” is raging and also a poignant piece about racial insensitivity.
