“It’s a really exciting time!” Burna Boy told Rolling Stone when the show was first announced in December. “A kid from the south side of Nigeria headlining Madison Square Garden in New York as the first-ever Nigerian to achieve this! Not sure it gets any better and I’m extremely grateful!”
Burna Boy together with the energetic generation of Afrobeats singers with their great momentum have launched their talents and intellectual endowments in the global mainstream. They do not give excuse to fail but pull themselves by any means necessary. They are comfortable in their African skin and are not intimidated by any historical propaganda and generational injustice.
Nigerian younger generations have demonstrated that they were not held hostage by the lethargic and intellectual deficits of the older generation by continuous reinvention of themselves. They reinvented Afro beat music and took off from where the great Fela stopped. Now Afro beats or Afro fusion has become a household music around the world. Africans are no more consumers of outside music but exporters of hip and cool tunes with Afro indigenous touch.
Burna Boy has finally taken the Afrobeat music to the heart land of America @ Madison Square Garden and he deserves all the praises and accolades.
