Grammy-winning global superstar Burna Boy has once again made history with his sold-out show at New York City’s Citi Field stadium.
Becoming the first African artist in history to sell out a stadium in the U.S., the Nigerian showman commanded a crowd of more than 40,000 fans, including celebs like Busta Rhymes, SZA, NBA star Mo Bamba, NFL star Larry Ogunjobi, and British rapper Dave, who also joined Burna on stage for a special performance of their hit song “Location.”
Highlights included a performance of his newest single, “Sittin’ On Top Of The World,” a sneak peak of his unreleased track “Big 7,” and an explosive finale where the crowd belted every word to the star’s massive hit “Last, Last” while fireworks lit up the sky.
Last year, the African Giant became the first African musician to sell-out the world-famous Madison Square Garden. Earlier this year, he sold-out London Stadium, performing to a staggering 80,000 fans. In 2021, Burna became the first Nigerian artist to win a Grammy Award in an album category, taking home “Best Global Music Album” for “Twice As Tall.” His 2022 follow-up, “Love, Damini,” became the highest charting album by a Nigerian artist.
