Burna Boy continues to solidify his status as a global music powerhouse with his captivating live performances. On March 2nd, the superstar headlined a sold-out show at the 20,000-seat TD Arena in Boston, marking another stop on his “I Told Them” tour.
This concert further cemented his reputation as a global entertainer following his historic back-to-back sold-out shows at the 19,000-capacity Scotia Bank Arena in Toronto, making him the first African artist to achieve this feat.
The Boston concert wasn’t just about electrifying the audience with his music. Burna Boy also received special recognition from the Mayor of Boston, who presented him with a plaque commemorating “Burna Boy Day.”
Burna Boy’s success transcends individual performances and tours. Since his 2018 international breakthrough with the hit single “YE,” he has consistently broken records and achieved numerous firsts for Nigerian and African music.
Notably, he became the first Nigerian mainstream pop artist to win a Grammy Award, receiving it for his fifth album, “Twice As Tall.” He also holds the record for most Grammy nominations (10) for a Nigerian artist and is the first African artist to win three consecutive BET Awards.
