Grammy nominated for ‘World Music Album’ for African Giant alongside Beyonce’s The Lion King: The Gift nomination for ‘Best Pop Vocal Album’ where he executed track eight “JA ARA E,” it’s safe to say, its been a big year for Burna Boy.
Recently, in the midst of all his success and worldwide touring, he stopped by NPR’s Tiny Desk to deliver this stellar performance of some fan favorites,”Gbona,” “Wetin Man Go Do“, “Dangote” and “Ye.” Notorious for rocking a stage, however, this performance welcomes a more personal flair, one that encourages listeners to zero in on his lyricism and authentic vibes. It’s a unique stage for the King of Afro-Beats and it presents a pleasant versatility.
