Grammy-winning Nigerian Afrobeats star, Burna Boy, made a grand entrance at his show in O2 Arena, London, United Kingdom, yesterday, August 27, 2021.
The singer arrived at his show in a spaceship amid cheers from fans who turned up.
The music star first graced the stage of The O2 arena alongside British superstar, Stormzy, at the BRIT Awards in 2020 but returned for his first-ever headline show on Friday.
Some Nigerian music stars including Omah Lay, Ruger, and Rema also performed at the show.
Thanking Burna Boy for the opportunity, Ruger tweeted:
My first performance in London was at the O2. My God, you are so good I will praise you for the rest of my life. God bless @burnaboy.
Reacting to their performances, Burna Boy tweeted:
I swear watching Rema and Omah lay tonight made me so emotional. I’m so proud of them boys.
Hailing the Odogwu crooner, fans took to Twitter to congratulate him for a successful concert using the hashtag, #BurnaboyO2
A fan, @olafweshy, said:
Burna Boy did it, sold out, had a great show! That’s it. Spread the love.
Another fan, @almightydiggy, said:
Expensive tickets, No live streaming, and he still did it.
Listing Burna Boy’s successes at the event, @burnadon1 said:
Burna boy took Afrobeat to O2… He entered the O2 on a spaceship, he left on a spaceship. Thousands of outsiders are outside. Burna sang like never before, one of his best I’ve ever seen. From this day onwards, I forbid anything that deprives me of being an outsider.
