Burna Boy makes history in London

  • Nigerian grammy ward winning superstar Burna Boy made history in London after selling out a Stadium in London. He is presently the only African artist to sell tickets to over 60,000 fans who came out to watch him perform at the home of west ham football club.

    The historic show was held on Saturday, June 3rd, 2023 and captures not only Burna Boy's meteoric rise to global stardom but also the fast rise of Afrobeats, it was indeed a spectacular show that will be talked about for a long time not just in the UK but in the entertainment industry around the world.

    Burna Boy had earlier announced the show as part of the stops for his 'Love, Damini' World Tour.

    Burna Boy thrilled fans with a collection of his hit songs including the mega-hit 'YE' which the stadium cheerfully sang along to.

    Burna Boy's international rise started in 2018 when his single 'YE' caught the attention of global listeners when Kanye West named his album the same thing.

    Since then, Burna Boy has become one of the leading artists taking Afrobeats to a global audience and he has gone on to become one of the biggest music stars in the world. He became the first mainstream Nigerian artist to win a Grammy when he won in 2021 for his album 'Twice As Tall'.

    Burna Boy recently earned two Grammy nominations for 'Last Last' which was nominated for the Global Song category while his 6th album 'Love, Damini' was nominated for the World Album category.

    With his performance at the London Stadium, Burna Boy continues to set the pace as the artist leading the international push of Afrobeats.
