Burna Boy, the Grammy Award-winning superstar, is continuing on the rise. When he live-streamed his highly anticipated “One Night In Space” concert at New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden yesterday on YouTube, the Afro-fusion pioneer became not only the first Nigerian music singer to headline at the Madison Square Garden, MSG, New York, but also the first to sell it out.
This tremendous win for Burna Boy and the entire African continent proves his point in the lyrics of ‘Way Too Big,’ when he sings, “Because I’m way too big.” He clearly wasn’t kidding. Burna Boy, who appeared as a guest on the American talk show “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” had everyone, including Trevor in stitches with his naturalness and authenticity, serving as a preview of what to anticipate at the MSG.
The self-acclaimed ‘African Giant has also revealed that an exclusive limited line of merchandise will be made available to commemorate this historic event as the first Nigerian musician to ever headline the world-renowned venue, however, promised a classic fusion of elements and themes combined with his explosive energy and the true spirit of New York City, which will culminate into an unforgettable night in New York City.
