Nigerian Singer, Burna Boy has disclosed why his family members are important members of his team and why he keeps using them.

Burna Boy further spoke on his plan to take his Afro-fusion music to the world’s biggest stages. Selling out Madison Square Garden was just the beginning.

“My dream venues, other than all the stadiums in the world, are unorthodox, like a theme park or a f–king train station. A concert in a big-ass train station, and there’s no trains and the whole tracks are filled with people. I just want to do weird s–t like that for my own pleasure.”

“It’s always been my vision to build a bridge between all Black people in all parts of the world through the music and performance. Music is the No. 1 messenger.”
