In a string of historic achievements, Burna Boy has triumphed as the first African artist to consistently sell out renowned venues worldwide. Notably, he marked a milestone earlier this year by headlining a stadium concert in the United Kingdom, setting a precedent as the first African to achieve this feat. His prowess extended to the United States, where his electrifying performance at the Citi Field stadium in New York secured him the title of the first African artist to sell out a U.S. stadium.
The year 2023 has witnessed Burna Boy’s unwavering prominence as a global icon in African music. Adding to his legacy, his seventh album, ‘I Told Them,’ etched its place in history as his fourth consecutive album nominated for the prestigious Grammys.
As anticipation builds for the 2024 Grammys, Burna Boy’s outstanding contributions have earned him four nominations. Among these, his hit single ‘City Boy’ stands out, securing a nomination for Best African Music Performance, while ‘Alone’ is in the running for Best.
