Authored by

Africa’s Giant and Grammy winning artiste, Burna Boy stands twice as tall as he made history on June 29, 2024 to become the first African artiste to sell out the 80,000-capacity London Stadium twice!

The Glastonbury’24 is one of the stops for his record-making 'I Told Them' tour.

Arguably the best on stage musical performer in Africa, Burna’s stage presence was nothing short of the usual - a masterclass in showmanship, London holds a special place in his heart and he showed this as he effortlessly enagaged with the audience throught the course of the show, encouraging sing-alongs and call-and-response interactions.The atmosphere in the stadium was electric from start to finish.

The concert had several opening acts, starting with a comedic performance by Sabinus, the nigerian skit maker and comedian who had the audience roaring with laughter, the opening lineups also included Phyno, Omah Lay, Seyi Vibez who perfomed Giza with burna on stage, and the duo of Odomodu Blvck and Shallipopi who performed their hit song “Cast”. 

The production of the concert was top-tier as expected. Burna Boy also debuted his new stage design at the Glastonbury 2024, he has changed his microphone from red to silver, he was dressed as a cowboy in full Louis Vuitton which might be indicating a new era!

During the course of the concert, Burna performed his award winning hits and fan favorites such as; Gbona, Dey Play, Location, Sittin’ on Top of the World, Big 7, Talibans Remix, Giza, City Boys, It’s Plenty, and much more. The live performance with his band - The Outsiders added more soul to the production of the concert, making sure the gbedu was felt.

Some special performances include the remix of YG Marley’s “praise Jah in the moonlight” and Coldplay’s unreleased collaboration with Little Simz and Burna Boy. 

With this feat of Burna has clearly shown, he is clearly in a league of his own, One pea in a pod.
