The city of Boston in Massachusetts, United States, has declared March 2nd as “Burna Boy’s Day” in honour of the Nigerian singer.
This was contained in a document of the Boston City Council signed by Councillor Ruthzee Louijeune.
According to the document, Burna Boy was honoured in recognition of his “performances and advocacy works.”
The document read inter alia: “Boston’s commitment to recognizing and celebrating culture and diversity is evident in the range of cultural events, festivals, and community initiatives that showcase the city’s multicultural landscape and:
“Whereas, Burna Boy’s legacy serves as a reminder of possibility, reminding us to continue amplifying voices that have long been silenced or overlooked, now, therefore be it resolved: That March 2, 2024 is designated Burna Boy Day in the City of Boston.”
Burna Boy has held so many soldout shows in Boston since breaking into the international scene in 2018.(www.naija247news.com).
