Just a few weeks ago, Burna Boy made history by selling out the London Stadium for the second time, attracting a crowd of 80,000 music enthusiasts. This achievement set a new benchmark for African artists and was part of his 2024 “I Told Them” tour, which kicked off in January.

According to available information, the African Giant, as he is fondly called, and his team are projected to earn $26 million (44 billion Naira) from January to July.

Even before releasing his album “I Told Them” on August 25, 2023, several investors and sponsors were eager to handle Burna Boy’s tours for the rest of the year. Selling out the London Stadium, with a full capacity of 80,000 people for concerts, has significant financial implications. Tickets for Burna Boy’s concert ranged from 60 to 90 pounds per person.

This means the singer generated between 5 million to over 7 million pounds. The African Giant delivered an electrifying and unforgettable performance at the concert, much to the delight of Londoners.

He performed songs such as “I Told Them,” “Gbona,” “Dey Play,” “Location,” “Sittin’ on Top of the World,” “Big 7,” “Talibans Remix,” “Giza,” “City Boys,” “It’s Plenty,” “Last Last,” and more.

Burna Boy also brought some Nigerian colleagues on stage, including Omah Lay, Phyno, Shallipopi, Odumodu Blvck, and Seyi Vibez, among others. Shortly after his London Stadium performance, Burna Boy took his talents to the Glastonbury Festival, where he performed alongside other international artists. This gig also came with a substantial paycheck, likely amounting to hundreds of thousands of pounds sterling.
