BurnaBoy makes Time Most Influential People of 2024

Afrobeat artist, BurnaBoy aka African giant have made it to Time 100 most influential People and its no surprise, given his incredible success.

In a beautifully written article by Angélique Kidjo, she wrote on the Nigerian Grammy winning artist;

Burna Boy has made that vision a global reality. Inspired by the fantastic drums of Nigerian folk music, and studied in the craft of the great African singer-songwriters, he follows in the footsteps of Fela Kuti—the internationally celebrated Afrobeats artist and activist. Burna Boy’s deeply original flow and his signature groove have conquered the world with an impressive series of firsts: in 2023, he became the first African artist to sell out a U.S. stadium, and in 2024, he became the first Afrobeats artist to sing at the Grammys.

He is history in the making. Now a whole generation of young people from the continent is looking up to him.

It’s amazing how he changed the game of Afrobeat. Congratulations OluwaBurna on your Time’s recognition.

Love to hear from you
