If you know BoxWon, you know he’s a multifaceted artist oozing with talent. Narrating a documentary for BBC is one of his latest accomplishments 🎙 HUGE congratulations to Box for reaching new heights 🚀

Stream "Breaking through" on BBC Sounds: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3ct2gcz

Forever grateful for the opportunities this dance has provided during my journey.

Never thought I’d narrate a documentary, let alone for a platform as major as the @bbc @bbcnews .

Thank you to the producer @simonarata and the bro @emmanuel_adelekun for handling all things research. Definitely an unforgettable moment on my timeline 🙏🏾

Go stream “Breaking Through” now!
