Afrobeats is quickly becoming one of the world’s most popular music genres, and Burna Boy is one of the performers bringing the music to a worldwide audience.

On May 20, 2023, the Grammy winner performed at the La Défense Arena in Paris, France as part of his ‘Love, Damini’ World Tour.

The hitmaker sold out the 40,000-person Arena, an incredible success for an African musician.

Burna Boy sang songs from his Grammy-nominated 6th album ‘Love, Damini,’ which included smash singles such as ‘Last Last,’ ‘For Your Hand,’ and ‘It’s Plenty,’ released in 2022.

He also delighted listeners with some of his vintage recordings that span 5 albums, and a video from the event uploaded on social media showed fans singing along to his 2018 smash tune ‘YE’.

Burna Boy has become Africa’s most appreciated musician globally after earning international prominence with ‘YE’ in 2018. ‘African Giant’ got him his first Grammy nomination in 2019. With his fifth album, ‘Twice As Tall,’ he was nominated for a Grammy in 2020.

Burna Boy has established himself as a world-class musician with sold-out performances in some of the world’s most prestigious locations, including Madison Square Garden, the O2 Arena, the Toyota Centre Texas, and several other European sites.

On June 3, 2023, the Grammy winner will become the first African to headline a gig at London’s 60 000-person London Stadium.
