The event emphasized Nigerian musicians’ challenges in the global music industry, as they must maintain contact with their homeland while performing for foreign audiences. Burna Boy’s fame and popularity in Nigeria and overseas have spurred debate on social media regarding the difficulties that Nigerian artists confront.
Despite the varied reactions to his explanation and the issues facing Nigerian music, Burna Boy’s international success and support for Nigerian music have earned him accolades from a huge number of Nigerians.
The artist’s delay and contempt for his Nigerian followers show how difficult it is for Nigerian singers to break into the worldwide music industry. His unusual voice and demeanor, on the other hand, have made him one of Nigeria’s most popular musicians.
