Burna Boy becomes the first Nigerian to sell out the Madison Square Garden
Burna Boy has officially become, not just the first Nigerian artist to headline at the Madison Square Garden (MSG), New York, but also the first to sell it out when he live-streams his wildly anticipated “One Night In Space” show at New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden on April 28th, 2022 at 9:00 pm ET, exclusively on YouTube.
This massive win for Burna Boy and the entire African continent goes to buttress his point in the lyrics of 'Way too Big' when he sang "Because I’m way too big”. It's clear he wasn’t joking
Burna Boy’s sold-out debut at LA’s The Hollywood Bowl, electrifying performances at 2021 Global Citizen Festival and The Governor’s Ball, as well as sold-out international shows at London’s O2 Arena, Paris’ Accor Arena, Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome and more venues around the globe, as part of his 2021 Space Drift tour which echoes the sounds from his groundbreaking fifth studio album TWICE AS TALL — an immediate sensation, earning more than 5M worldwide streams within its first hour of release.
Among its countless accolades, TWICE AS TALL received the 2021 GRAMMY® Award for “Best Global Music Album,” having already made history as the first time a Nigerian artist received back-to-back nominations in the category (following 2019’s GRAMMY® Award-nominated AFRICAN GIANT).
