The star is set to become the first African artist to make history at a British stadium.
Burna Boy burst onto the charts this year with ‘Last Last’ and on that momentum, Starr will become the first African artist to make history in a British stadium.
Yesterday it was officially announced that the superstar will be performing a special ‘Love, Damini’ show at London Stadium on June 3rd. This concert has the same name as his latest studio album.
Topping Robomagic Live and the Coko Bar show (which will host an expected crowd of 60,000), the Grammy-winner and Afrobeat heavyweight will be the first African to headline a UK stadium. Become an artist.
News of the show comes on the heels of sold-out performer shows at London’s OVO Arena Wembley and The O2, and a sold-out spectacle at New York’s Madison Square Garden (another history-making event). .
Speaking about the upcoming concert, Barna said in a statement
“London Stadium will be my venue! I’ve been told that I haven’t achieved anything because of where I’m from, but hopefully I can show people that it doesn’t matter where you come from if you have a dream.” This is legendary, it’s history and we can’t wait for you to be a part of it.”
Talk about ‘Wild Dreams’ as he sang on the record for the album with the help of Khalid.
