“Burna Boy is a force of nature whose global rise shows no sign of slowing down any time soon,” said Apple Music’s global head of hip-hop and R&B, Ebro Darden, who sat down with Burna Boy in London for an interview set to air on Tuesday 18 July, on Apple Music 1.

The past 18 months have seen Burna Boy’s meteoric rise from an Afrobeats powerhouse to a global superstar, as evidenced by his rapidly growing touring achievements. In April 2022, the Grammy winner became the first Nigerian artist to sell out Madison Square Garden, with over 30,000 tickets sold. Subsequently, he embarked on his first complete U.S. arena tour, captivating nearly 15,000 fans each night across 10 dates. In 2023, in addition to his landmark U.S. and U.K. stadium dates, Burna Boy also sold out shows in Paris and the Netherlands, with another Dutch performance scheduled later this month on 23 July.

Burna Boy’s sold-out performance at London Stadium will debut Wednesday 19 July 19 at 12 pm PT on Apple Music and Apple TV+, as well as Apple Music and Burna Boy’s respective TikTok pages.
