Following the much-publicized sold-out concert by Afrobeat musician Burna Boy at Madison Square Garden in New York, Nigerian reality TV star, Tayo Faniran turned to Instagram to boast about Burna Boy.
The African Giant on Thursday, April 28, 2022, held his ‘One Night in Space’ concert at Madison Square Garden Concert New York where he sold out the 20,789 capacity venue.
Tayo Faniran, who was there to honor the superstar, compared Burna Boy to American rapper and Hip-Hop artist, Jay-Z, claiming that he is greater than the latter but that people are too afraid to praise him.
“Burna Boy is a better Afrobeat artist than Jay-Z as a rapper they just are so scared to celebrate him as much as he deserves”, he wrote.
Tayo Faniran also uploaded a video of a Burna Boy performance he saw in 2019 that had a profound impact on his life.
“29th of August 2019,I was present at this Burnaboys live show in Hollywood Los Angeles,and something changed in my life (part of the major reasons I relocated to Lagos,but that’s a story for another day ),Trending
I started screaming in that hall, I’M A NIGERIAN TOO ✊🏿,but instead of every Nigerian to be shouting Burna! Burna! today,they would rather pretend to be distracted by a fucken Polygamy bullshit story 🤨,I shake my head in Portuguese.”
