City of Boston Declares March 2nd as ‘Burna Boy Day’

The city of Boston in Massachusetts, United States, has declared March 2nd as “Burna Boy’s Day” in honour of the Nigerian Afrobeat singer.

The Nigerian super star, Burna Boy held many sold-out shows in Boston since breaking into the international scene in 2018.

However, in a document signed by Councillor Ruthzee Louijeune, the Boston City Council said Burna Boy was honoured in recognition of his “performances and advocacy works.”

It noted that Burna Boy’s legacy serves as a reminder of possibility and the need to continue amplifying voices that have longed to be silenced or overlooked.
