Burna Boy’s ‘African Giant’ makes history after going platinum in France

In 2018, Burna Boy soared to international success after his single ‘YE’ came to the attention of rap fans who were searching for Kanye West’s new album of the same name.

With his career on a fast rise internationally, Burna Boy released his fourth album ‘African Giant’ in 2019 which charted a new course for African music internationally.

Five years after its release, ‘African Giant’ has now been declared platinum in France by SNEP after exceeding over 100,000 units in sales.

The certification owes a lot to the success of ‘On The Low’ and ‘Gbona’ which have earned platinum certifications in France.
‘African Giant’ is now the only Nigerian album to be declared platinum after sharing the SNEP gold record with Rema’s debut album ‘Raves & Roses’.
In 2023, Burna Boy’s hit single ‘Last Last’ was declared diamond by SNEP in what was another testament of his international success.
