Grammy-award-winning star, Burna Boy, will perform at Madison Square Garden in New York City, marking a historic milestone as the first Nigerian musician to headline the famed venue.
JAY Z, Justin Bieber, Bruce Springsteen, and a slew of other artists have performed on the legendary stage, including JAY Z, Justin Bieber, Bruce Springsteen, and a slew of others.
To mark the momentous occasion—which follows Burna Boy’s electrifying shows at The Hollywood Bowl and 2021 Global Citizen Festival plus sold-out shows in London, Paris, Amsterdam—has enlisted a team of creatives to designed limited-edition merchandise commemorating Thursday night’s show G. Thomas, art director for Warner Music Group, ESSENCE reported.
Talking about the inspiration behind the design, ESSENCE quoting Thomas said, “For Burna’s “One Night In Space” merch we wanted to encapsulate that larger than life energy and excitement that Burna shares with the City.
With the touchdown of the African Giant in New York, we pushed on creating artwork that was loud and imaginative,”
“We tapped into several talented artists to create a series of cosmic illustrations that tied together the famous color combinations of New York and Nigeria. Among the artist that work on this collection were, third-generation airbrush artist, Andrew Martinez (@guava_la), French illustrator, Pol-Edouard (@pol_edouard), and design firm, Precision Design Group (@precisiondesigngroup).”
He added, whether or not you’re attending the Madison Square Garden show in person, the “One Night In Space” merchandise will be available at Burna Boy’s webstore beginning at 6:00pm EST on Thursday, April 28. The items include shirts, hats hoodies, crewnecks, and tote bags and will range in price from $25 to $100.
