This event marked the first time an African artist headlined a stadium show in the U.K. It precedes the African Giant’s triumph as the first African artist to sell out a stadium show in the United States, filling 41,000 seats on July 8th at New York’s Citi Field Stadium.
Burna Boy’s performance at the London Stadium was complemented by appearances from British music stars Stormzy, J Hus, and Dave, alongside Jamaican rapper, Popcaan. “I had an unforgettable experience performing at London Stadium,” Burna said in a press release. “The energy from the crowd was unmatched, and I’m grateful to all my fans for their unwavering support. Being featured in Apple Music Live is an incredible opportunity to share this historic moment with my fans worldwide. I’m excited for everyone to witness the magic we created that night. Special thanks to Apple Music for capturing and showcasing the performance. Stay tuned for an epic celebration of music and culture.”
Burna Boy stands at the forefront of Afrobeats, making waves globally with his unparalleled talent as an artist and performer. He has etched his name in history as the most-streamed Nigerian artist of all time on Apple Music worldwide, as well as the most-streamed artist in Nigeria.
“Burna Boy is a force of nature whose global rise shows no sign of slowing down any time soon,” said Ebro Darden, Apple Music’s global head of hip-hop and R&B, who sat down with Burna in London for an interview that aired Tuesday on Apple Music 1. “We’re thrilled to be able to present such a historic and career spanning performance to Burna’s fans around the world.”
Fans of the “Last Last” crooner can catch his whole set on Apple Music, along with Apple TV+ and Apple Music’s TikTok page and Burna’s TikTok page.
