Nigerian superstar, Burna Boy breezed into town on the back of his many appearances in American media.
Weeks after appearing on notable platforms like Power 105.1, New York show, The Breakfast Club, Hot 97, New York show, Ebro In The Morning, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Comedy Central show, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and even GQ, the singer is back home.
While he held a listening party in Los Angeles, California in May, 2019, the singer has held the Nigerian leg of listening party for his critically acclaimed 7th project, African Giant. This comes a few days after getting mentioned by legend, Elton John on Beats 1 by Apple.
The listening party held in the late hours of Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at LASWA Yard, Falomo Jetty, Lagos. The event was attended by celebrities like Seyi Shay, Tiwa Savage, Avala of BBNaija, Zlatan, Poco Lee, Rexxie, Bovi, DJ Jimmy Jatt, DJ Spinall, Dammy Krane, Bollylomo, Toke Makinwa and so forth.
During the event, the crowd got a treat of the 19 songs from African Giant. Songs from Burna Boy’s previous albums were also played at the event while fans swayed to the rhythm inside the arena and filled their bellies with the warm essence of blended spirits. They also took home gifts from the various sponsors.
He was surrounded by his dad, his mom, grandfather, Benson Idonije and his grandmother while fans swayed and at times rumbled to his music. At the same time, the singer was also surrounded by his peers, celebrating him. Just as the thought of the man’s obvious happiness crossed my mind, a friend took the words right out of my mouth.
As the party drew to a close, the atmosphere was calm and tension was absent and Burna then retired to a bar to chill with his fans.
