*Says He is Aman of Action, Not Talk
Friday night, August 28, was certainly a big hit for gifted Nigerian music act, Burna Boy in London. He was the cynosure of all eyes at the 02 Arena, where he clocked in on stage aboard a spaceship look-alike before taking his very excited fans, in their thousands, through a steamy musical journey.
But the Nigerian show biz class act, who holds the country’s bragging right to the Grammy, went swaggering afterwards, boasting that he personally dictated the terms of his 02 Arena appearance, a reason why the event was not only packed full but had all available 20,000 tickets sold out.
Never known to miss out on bragging rights, Burna Boy took to his verified Instagram handle to push the narrative that like every other of his show venues, he sold out the arena by himself, at the prices that he wanted and the way he wanted it to be done.
I’ve sold out every venue,” he wrote.
But it certainly wasn’t all brag for him though as there were many truths about his 02 Arena outing no one can wish off. Without a doubt, he gave a performance that justified why the venue was sold out. Remarkably, the wave-making artiste wooed his audience with a forget-me-not stage-present that took his performance to the stratosphere alongside his fans. It was enough to shut down the entire London entertainment scene for as long as it lasted.
He is billed for more performances in Los Angeles, Paris and Amsterdam on 8 October, November 10 and 15 respectively.
