Nigerian singer, Burna Boy, is set to become the first artiste from the country to headline at the Citi Field stadium. The Grammy-award-winning act, who also became the first Nigerian artiste to headline at the Madison Square Garden, will perform on the 8th of July, 2023.
The anticipated show, which takes place on the first anniversary of the release of his record-breaking 2022 album, Love, Damini, is one of many performances the “African Giant” will offer music lovers worldwide this year.
Burna is also set to take his Grammy-nominated record to the stages of Paris’s La Defense Arena, London Stadium, and Amsterdam’s 34,000-seater Gelre Dome, amongst others. He’s also slated to co-headline the 2023 UEFA Champions League Final Kick-Off Show by Pepsi in June at Istanbul’s Atatürk Olympic Stadium.
In an interview with Billboard, Burna Boy noted, “It has always been my vision to build a bridge between all Black people in all parts of the world through music and performance. Music is the No.1 messenger.” With all these performances, Burna Boy is fulfilling his vision step by step.
