Danzal Baker OAM AKA Baker Boy is an Australian rapper, dancer, artist, and actor. Baker Boy is known for rapping in both English and Yolngu Matha. A proud Yolngu man who grew up in Arnhem Land communities Milingimpi and Maningrida. He was made Young Australian of the Year in 2019, and his song “Cool as Hell” was nominated in several categories in the 2019 ARIA Awards. In 2018, he won two awards at the National Indigenous Music Awards and was named Male Artist of the Year in the National Dreamtime Awards. Baker Boy talks to Hayley MAC on Turnt Up Fridays about his new single “Ride” with Yirrmal and collaborating with the legendary INXS for their “New Sensation” dance video all thanks to LEGO VIDIYO.
Baker Boy, The LEGO Group’s minifigure, Universal Music Group’s newly signed artist L.L.A.M.A and two of the original band members from INXS also make a special guest appearance dancing their way across Sydney, visiting some iconic landmarks along the way, dancing to INXS’ New Sensation.
“VIDIYO is the kind of app I wish I had when I was a kid. I always loved dancing and performing, and something like this would have made my dreams feel more like a reality and help bring my creative visions to life,” Baker Boy said.
“I hope VIDIYO inspires kids across the country to dream big and know that with a little bit of dance, anything is possible.” This then inspired Baker boy to create a dance Tutorial with LEGO VIDIYO for the “New Sensation” music video.
