Burna Boy: The Live Experience Concert, hosted by Toro Entertainment Company on Monday, December 27 2021 at the Eko Convention Centre, Lagos, was an epic experience for Lagosians as Burna Boy turned up in Grand Style for his admirers.
The ‘Odogwu’ came to Lagos in December to offer his fans a well-deserved treat after performing on various stages throughout the world, including selling out the iconic O2 Arena. He walked to the stage to play a medley of his biggest hits, as well as songs from his critically acclaimed Twice as Tall album, which has received significant praise and attention from fans and artists around the world.
Burna Boy kicked off his own event with his Wetin dey Sup track, which had fans yelling the lyrics in delight. Then came Dave’s Location, which featured Burna, and Deja Vu, as well as the popular track Ja ara’ e.
Burna Boy performed songs from his African Giant Album, including Anybody, Another Story, Wonderful, Dangote, Secret with Serani and Jeremiah, Gbona, and Spiritual, to energise the crowd.
The Odogwu were joined on stage by a few exciting surprises, one of which being Mozambique’s Yaba Buluku lads. This group rocked the roof while performing their own Yaba Buluku Remix, matching Burna’s intensity. BlackSherif performed the Second Sermon Remix, which was another thrilling surprise on stage with Burna.
The event came to a close with Ye, the number one single from the 2018 Outside Album, which charted at 26 and 31 on Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop and R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay charts, respectively.
During the show, Burna Boy described himself as “” and said he was still getting used to fans mobbing him in reaction to their admiration. He did, however, humbly request that his followers refrain from jumping on stage during the show, as this could scare him.
The night went off without a hitch, with Burna’s performance wonderfully described in the phrase E file fun Burna, with fans going to social media to share their joy both during and after the show.
The Live Experience performance was part of the Stacked December concert series, which took place throughout December around Lagos. Toro Entertainment Company is in charge of organizing the event.
