In just 24hrs! Burna Boy became the first AFRICAN musician to headline a sold out concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden, the world’s most famous arena.

He proved worthy of his title as he joined the league of Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Adele, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey and other artistes.

The two-hour concert titled “One Night in Space” had 20,789 fans in attendance and has since amassed over 300,000 views on YouTube. The concert started with iconic US rapper, Busta Rhymes giving a short welcoming speech.

Thereafter, Senegal’s Youssou N’Dour opened the floor with a performance that pulled at the heart strings and teleported the whole arena to African soil. Burna Boy’s superb band, “the Outsiders” then made their entrance before Burna Boy gallantly appeared on stage singing “Level Up’’, the intro to his Grammy-winning 2020 album “Twice as Tall”. Youssou N’Dour sang his verse of the song and then nodded off to Burna Boy as he left the stage, a moment that was symbolic of the older generation paving the way for this new generation of African legends, of which Burna Boy is chief.
