With African Giant as opening track, he lived true to expectation, sustaining the eagerness of the fans from one track to another.
They could not have had it any better, even as the performance was inters-passed with musical intrigues.
The artiste has been the rave, not only due to his engaging acts on stage but also on account of his comments.
Recall that in the course of speaking about Nigerian youths in a recent interview he had said:
“I can guarantee you that at least 90% of my people that are my age group in Nigeria —who are considered the youth — had no clue about how Nigeria, the real origins of Nigeria. There’s so much knowledge, there’s so much truth that needs to be told. There’s so much that needs to… there’s so much that the youth needs to know in order to be — how do I explain it? — In order to be almost respected. Because really and truly right now, the only thing that can save the youth is knowledge and financial independence.”
For the show under reference however, he had backing him, his 7-man band, ‘The Outsiders’, his choir, ‘Burna’s Angels’ (dressed in all-white trendy outfits) and an 8-piece string orchestra.
Other acts on the day included Tome, WSTRN, Nissi with surprise appearances from Wizkid, M.anifest, Stormzy and Santan Dave.
“The CEO of Warner Music and a representative from the venue presented a Certified Sold Out Concert at the SSE Wembley Arena plaque to Burna Boy in recognition of his accomplishment.
Recall that Burna Boy was also awarded a plaque for selling out the O2 Academy, Brixton in 2018.
His manager, Bose Ogulu interrupted one of his performances to announce that Burna Boy had just won the MTV EMA for Best African Act at the MTV EMA Awards ceremony holding the same night at Seville, Spain.
