In recent years, the infectious beats of Afrobeats have captured the hearts of music lovers worldwide, even making their way into the UK Official Charts and shaping popular culture. This genre has given rise to numerous successful artists, including global icons like Wizkid and Davido and rising stars like Libianca. While homegrown British talent such as J Hus has also enjoyed chart-topping success on the Official Albums Chart, Burna Boy’s achievement as the first international Afrobeats star to earn a place in UK chart history is truly remarkable. At a packed London Roundhouse, Burna Boy was honoured with the Number 1 Award and celebrated his well-deserved victory on stage.
