Burna Boy “shuts down” Madison Square Garden with historic concert


Burna Boy, a Grammy-winning Nigerian singer, has become the first Nigerian artist to sell out a show at New York's Madison Square Garden.

The much-anticipated 'One Night In Space' concert on Thursday saw the "African giant" entertain fans to the hilt at the over-20,000-capacity venue.

The arena's patrons were joined by nearly 100,000 others who had joined the online stream via YouTube. According to entertainment analysts, Burna Boy is the only African to achieve this feat.


Burna and his band The Outsiders performed back-to-back hits for the audience for more than three hours. Among the songs performed on the night was Black Sherif's Second Sermon Remix, excerpts of which have gone viral on social media since Thursday.


Prior to the show, there was a lot of speculation about when the African Giant's new album would be released. On the night, he revealed for the first time that the project will be released on July 2, 2022.
