Burna Boy Saved Concert With Mind-Blowing Performance

Burna is Nigeria’s biggest artist in 2018, having the hottest song in the year and finishing what has been the best year of his six- year career, Burna announced his debut headline Lagos concert to his fans.

However, the event that took place at the Eko Hotel and Suites Convention Center on Wednesday, 26 December 2018 suffered from a long delay in kick- off.

There were opening performances from a number of rising acts like Soft, Attitude, King Perryy, PrettyBoy DO, Airboy, L.A.X, Kida Kudz, Oxlade and the rap duo, Show Dem Camp, who brought the likes of Funbi, BOJ and Poe to the stage during their set.

We also saw performances from the likes of DRB Lasgidi and Nissi with the hosts, Jimmie and Shody and DJ Consequence also doing their utmost to keep the crowd going.

Despite the appearance of Olisa Adibua, On Air Personality, to announce his arrival, Burna was still a no- show with a section of the crowd chanting tired boos. At about 2.30am, the cries of ‘Burna, Burna, Burna’ were been heard throughout the ground. Suddenly he appeared dressed in a royal blue jacket with matching pants to the sound of’ Heaven’s Gate’ on stage alongside his live band.

” I really planned a big entrance, but it’s Nigeria, they f***ed up,”’ he explained, apologizing to the crowd for his long delay.”

The stage also enjoyed performances by Dammy Krane, Zlatan, Wande Coal, Dj Spinall, Mayorkun. Before the DMW crew led by Davido singing “Mind” set the stage on fire.

Burna performed his breakout single, ‘Baba Nla’ where he brought out Larry Gaaga, D’banj and 2Baba on stage and at that moment, all his sins were forgiven as the fans screamed in excitement. It was one of the best performances on the night.

There was still plenty of time for Wizkid, Timaya and Patoranking to take the stage to show support while Burna closed the concert with ‘on the low,” Soke’ and, he performed his biggest son yet ‘ Ye,’ which he performed before the phone torches and loud voices.

What Burna Live suffered from in shoddy organization and delayed start, it made up for in stellar performances, elite showmanship and captivating sets delivering a night of live electrifying and truly spectacular homecoming of the Don Gorgon.
