In a Twitter post, he recounted his journey in New York and how he has headlined some other major events.

“The journey in NY has been a blessing. PlayStation theatre in 2017, Gramercy theatre in 2018, the Apollo in 2019 and today 2022 we are in Madison Square Garden. Thank you New York for sticking with me all these years through this great Journey,” he wrote.

Burna Boy started to gain fame after releasing ‘Like to Party’, the lead single from his debut album ‘L.I.F.E’ (2013).

In 2021, the singer set a record in Nigeria after his album ‘Twice As Tall’ won the ‘Best World Music Album’ category at the Grammys.
