“This is big”, and “This is epic” is how some social media users are reacting following confirmation that Grammy Award-winning Afrobeats star Burna Boy is set to bring his ‘Love Damini’ tour to Jamaica at the National Stadium.
On Thursday, Sharon Burke of Solid Agency/Burke Bodley Ltd, shared a press release to her official Instagram account, with details of Burna Boy’s upcoming performances in Trinidad and Tobago, Antigua and Barbuda, and Jamaica, on December 16, 17, and 18 respectively.
According to the press release, the move makes Burna Boy the first African artist ever to headline a stadium in these Caribbean Islands.
His sixth studio album Love Damini, which featured Dancehall star Popcaan on the song ‘Toni-Ann Singh’, was recently nominated for Best Global Music Album, and the album’s lead single Last Last was nominated for Best Global Music Performance at the upcoming 65th Annual Grammy Awards.
