Grammy-Award winning Nigerian artist, Burna Boy will be performing in Barbados this summer.
Twisted Entertainment, the promoters of Tipsy All White Party made that confirmation on Tuesday .
“With history-making shows, headlining the Hollywood Bowl, and most recently, selling out the prestigious Madison Square Garden, we are truly honoured and privileged to have an artist of Burna Boy’s calibre not only touch the Tipsy stage, but also perform in Barbados during Crop Over,” Crystal Cunningham, Public Relations Consultant for Twisted Entertainment, said.
After Burna Boy announced his tour dates during a Billboard Magazine article, his Barbadian fans on social media were buzzing, when they noticed one of his tour dates was scheduled to be held in Bridgetown.
The 30-year-old was born Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu.
He describes his style as “Afro-fusion” – a mixture of sounds from the African continent and hip-hop, EDM, and pop.
Some of his hits include Ye, On the Low, Kilometre, and B. d’Or.
He is set to be the first Afropop star and international act to perform at Tipsy Barbados in July during the Crop Over Festival.
He will perform live on July 17 alongside Kes the Band, Voice, and Hypasounds. (TG)
