Fans have declared today #BurnaDay and the reason is simple.

From police brutality to insecurity and economic instability, 2018 presented a lot of low moments. But while life gave us a thousand reasons to cry, @burnaboy blessed us with tunes to spur our excitement. #BurnaLive.

To reward him for his service to humanity via music, fans will converge at the nearly 5,000 capacity Eko Convention Centre on Lagos Island to support @burnaboy and very importantly, have a good time.

The excitement for #BurnaLive is also very well heightened because going by track record, @burnaboy is a remarkably spirited performer but fans in Nigeria have not enjoyed the full pleasure of his on-stage spetacle.

Why? Because he’s not had a Nigerian headline in many years. pic.twitter.com/zaC6hpczlH

Recall that in 2017, @burnaboy had announced a headline event dubbed ‘The Burna Boy Show’ which was later postponed and eventually cancelled following his situation with the law.

If experiences are the benefits of mistakes, then from the troubles of last year and before, @burnaboy gained an experience of a career-threatening magnitude.

He has refrained from controversy and the benefit is a run that is easily the best of his career so far. #BurnaLive
