Burna Boy’s concert at London Stadium in June will be live streamed on Apple Music and TikTok.
The concert marked the first time an African artist headlined a stadium show in the U.K. Stormzy, J Hus and Dave, and Popcaan joined Burna Boy for the concert. “I had an unforgettable experience performing at London Stadium,” the singer said about his performance. “The energy from the crowd was unmatched, and I’m grateful to my fans for their unwavering support.”
“Being featured in Apple Music Live is an incredible opportunity to share this historic moment with my fans worldwide. I’m excited for everyone to witness the magic we created that night. Special thanks to Apple Music for capturing and showcasing the performance,” Burna Boy concludes.
The Nigerian artist’s contribution to the Afrobeats genre is unmatched. Now the sold-out show will be available for streaming on Apple Music, Apple TV+, and on Burna Boy’s TikTok page.
During the performance at London Stadium, the singer showcased some of his biggest hits, including “Last Last,” “Sittin’ On Top of the World,” “Ye,” and “Real Life.”
“Burna Boy is a force of nature whose global rise shows no sign of slowing down any time soon,” adds Apple Music’s Global Head of Hip Hop and R&B, Ebro Darden. Ebro spoke with Burna Boy about his influence for an interview airing on Apple Music 1. “We’re thrilled to be able to present such a historic and career-spanning performance to Burna’s fans around the world.”
He is the most-streamed artist in Nigeria, with his 2019 album African Giant shattering records for first-day and first-week streams. His 2022 album Love, Damini claimed the top spot on Apple Music in more than 70 countries when it dropped—once again setting new first-day and first-week streams by an African artist. His songs regularly feature in the Daily Top 100 chart in more than 130 countries, with many of his songs becoming trends on TikTok.
