Burna Boy is cooking in the U.K., where he’s set to become the first African artist to headline a stadium concert.
The Nigeria-born Afrobeats star (real name Damini Ogulu) leads the lineup for the Love, Damini tour date at London Stadium, set for June 3, 2023.
“London Stadium is going to be my fairground,” he comments. “I’ve been told that I couldn’t achieve anything because of where I came from, I hope this can show people that when you have a dream it doesn’t matter where you’ve come from, your dream can come true.”
The history-making show at London Stadium (formerly the Olympic Stadiu) “is going to be legendary, it’s history and I can’t wait for you all to be a part of that.”
