Burna Boy shuts down O2 Arena in headline concert
Multiple award winner and Afro-fusion pioneer, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, on August 27, 2021, shut down London with his headline concert performance at the O2 Arena during his ‘Space Drift Arena Tour’.
The concert followed the release of his latest hit single, Question, which features Nigerian beatmaker and record label chief, Collins Ajereh, professionally known as Don Jazzy. The single made and is still making massive waves across all radio stations and online music streaming platforms.
Organised by Cokobar, in association with Spaceship Entertainment, the concert heralded the African Giant crooner kicking off ‘The O2 Welcome Back Show’ series, which also featured a diverse lineup of headline artistes, including Mavin Records’ Ruger and Rema that performed for the mammoth audience.
The iconic O2 Arena, which is known for having the second-highest seating capacity of any indoor venue in the United Kingdom, and tagged the world’s busiest music arena, had its concert hall packed to the brim with an overly excited crowd.
The event showcased the mercurial performances that Burna Boy, Ruger, Rema, and Omah Lay are known for — the cataclysmic sounds that make their unique music.
Reacting to the performances, Burna Boy tweeted: “I swear to watch Rema and Omah Lay tonight made me so emotional. I’m so proud of the boys.”
Highpoint of the show that left the crowd in awe of the Twice as Tall crooner was his entrance and exit on a giant spaceship.
