Gabriel Soprinye Halliday (born 11 April 1988), known to most people by his stage name Slim Burna, is a  Nigerian musician, singer, rapper and record producer. Halliday was born in Essex, and grew up in the capital city of  Rivers State in Nigeria, Port Harcourt. He entered the music industry as a record producer for Grafton Records  before founding Street Rhymes in 2008. He first gained recognition after releasing his own version of "Oyoyo" (originally by J Martins) in 2009. The song became an instant hit and was featured in several mix tapes  put together by the Nigerian DJs Coalition. His first official full-length project I'm on Fire was  released on his 25th birthday in April 2013, to positive critical reception and became arguably the most successful mixtape  ever released from a Port Harcourt artist. The 15-track musical offering racked up thousands of downloads on multiple  music sites and reached Number 3 on Music of Africa Top 10 Mixtapes.

Before entering the fourth quarter of 2013, Burna recorded "Oh Na Na Na" which  made its premiere on September 28, 2013 on Rhythm 93.7 PHC. The song was released to commemorate Nigeria's 53rd  National Day Anniversary and received generally positive to mixed reviews from music critics]]. It  entered the TGIF Chart at number ten, before eventually peaking at number two, thus making it the first radio top ten hit  of his career.
