Burna Boy‘s press run for his critically and commercially successful album, “African Giant,” has been nothing short of amazing. The globetrotting Afro-fusionist has been on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, performing a ‘Ye/Anybody‘ live medley; Jimmy Kimmel Live; The Breakfast Club; the Ctrl live session where he performed ‘Collateral Damage‘ live and Audiomack where he performed a Trap symphony of ‘Ye‘, ‘On the Low‘ and ‘Anybody‘ with an orchestra. And now, Burna has pulled up at NPR for a Tiny Desk performance between two sold-out concerts in Washington D.C.
Backed by his beaming five-piece “The Outsiders” band, Burna Boy treats the audience to a thrilling run of highlights off his raving album, “The African Giant” and an old favourite off his stellar “Outside” mixtape. The set is woven in such a manner that would make you dance and think about the reality of Nigerians at the same time.
