Burna Boy Makes History As The First African Musician To Sell Out US Stadium

Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, achieves a stunning milestone by becoming the first African artist to sell out a stadium in the United States. On Saturday, the self-proclaimed African Giant made history by filling the 41,000-capacity Citi Field Stadium in New York City. Nissi, Burna Boy’s sister, performed as the opening act at the performance in the United States of America, adding to the excitement.

Burna Boy requested British rapper Dave to join him on stage during his gripping performance for their joint tune, ‘Location.’

Burna provided an unforgettable evening for the eager crowd, performing explosive renditions of his popular singles, including ‘Ye,’ as well as songs from his last four albums: ‘Outside,’ ‘African Giant,’ ‘Twice As Tall,’ and ‘Love Damini.’ This landmark event not only honors the performer but also marks a turning point in the African music industry.

Burna Boy exhibited the immense power and influence of African music on a global scale with his addictive Afrobeat sound and dynamic stage presence. The sold-out event not only demonstrated the huge demand for African artists on the international music industry, but it also confirmed Burna Boy’s role as a trendsetter and ambassador for African culture.

His incredible journey from Nigeria’s streets to global recognition is reflected in his groundbreaking achievement at CitiField Stadium.
