East London-born artist Berna connects with fast-rising rapper Glizz for their new collaboration “Different” which is a mid-tempo jam that details their distinct lifestyles and the never-ending daily struggles for young men out in the ends. Backed by solemn vocal samples, warm textures and sparse drum grooves, both emcees deliver emotionally powerful performances peppered with graphic details of their true lives. The song comes with a well-crafted video that shows viewers the duo in their stomping grounds. From the subtle video effects, performance shots and smooth transitions, viewers are easily transported into the mix.

“Different” is the focus single from Berna’s EAST2ESSEX mixtape.



Born in Cape Town and raised in East London by his Congolese mother, Berna now calls Essex home. At just 16, he catapulted to fame when his legendary Bl@ckbox freestyle went viral, making him the youngest rapper to grace the Fire In The Booth stage. His ascent to rap stardom was swift, known for his signature flow and wordplay, earning him a revered status within the scene at a young age. Known for his fearless approach to freestyling, Berna has left his mark on platforms like Bl@ckbox, Daily Duppy, and Mad About Bars. While overnight success often brings its share of challenges, Berna, now 25, has entered a phase of contentment and confidence, channelling his past struggles into his music. Influenced by icons such as Meek Mill, Chip, Skepta, and Ghetts, Berna’s upbringing on the classics is evident in his matured style, dubbing himself an “older man trapped in a young man’s body.
