Burna Boy has become the standard for many in the African music scene. The gifted singer has been smashing and setting records at both local and international levels.
Months ago, he became the first and only African artist to sell out the 20k capacity Madison Square Garden in New York City, where he had a remarkable concert which is in fact, one for the books. Months later, his global hit ‘Last Last‘ had the fastest debut on Billboard Hot 100 for an African record.
Just yesterday, Burna Boy’s 6th studio album ‘Love, Damini‘ clocked 200 million streams on Spotify, becoming the only African artist with 3 albums that have amassed 200 million streams on Spotify; Love, Damini, Twice as Tall, and African Giant. With multiple records broken and reset, Burna Boy isn’t stopping anytime soon as he becomes the most streamed artist on the Boomplay platform with over 400 million streams.
With 400 million streams, Burna Boy stays atop the list of the most streamed artists on Boomplay, leading the likes of Kizz Daniel with 348 million, Fireboy DML with 291 million, Omah Lay with 261 million, and Davido with 169 million.
