Over 12,500 music lovers were thrilled to the eccentric performance of the African Giant, Burna Boy at the SSE Wembley Arena in London.
Hosted by Nigerian comedian, Basketmouth, the African Giant Tour Returns, which was held on Sunday, November 3rd, 2019 was a sold-out epoch concert.
n a true Burna Boy’s fashion, his entrance on stage left fans on tenterhooks. Burna emerged from the jaws of a 20-foot gorilla to a nostalgic Fuji instrumental blend of Yoruba sounds, eliciting loud cheers from the crowd. He was lifted out with a harness and glided 20 feet high over the audience to his opening track, African Giant.
The ‘Dangote’ crooner treated his fans to a catalog of his hit songs, and fans had a good time singing along, creating a charged atmosphere with an energy that matched Burna’s amazing performances. His performances were aided by his 7-man band, ‘The Outsiders’, his choir, ‘Burna’s Angels’ (dressed in all-white trendy outfits) and an 8-piece string orchestra.
Before his remarkable entrance on stage, fans were treated to exhilarating performances from Tome, WSTRN, Nissi who were the opening acts of the show. Surprise appearances from Wizkid, M.anifest, Stormzy and Santan Dave, who joined Burna Boy on stage to perform their numbers to a rousing crowd, added to the rapturous excitement.
