This Is What the Burna Comics Pop-Up In NYC Looked Like

In photos: Burna Boy & Audiomack transformed Brooklyn's Anyone Comics book store into an all-out Twice As Tall affair.

Over the weekend, Brooklyn hosted the special pop-up event Burna Comics, which saw Burna Boy's comic book world come to life.

If you remember, Burna Boy's latest album Twice As Tall came accompanied by a comic book to "put the project in perspective abs some insight into the album title and why I chose it," the artist mentioned. Well, Burna and the team at Audiomack helped that come true IRL.

Speaking about the Burna Comics event, the Nigerian star mentioned: "The best part about creating a project is the idea of your listeners being able to engage with it! I haven't been on tour in months so I'm excited for my fans to have a chance to engage with my art! I feel blessed!"

Hosted at Anyone Comics in Brooklyn, attendees were able to browse and grab limited editions Burna Boy comics, merchandise, and food, as well as enter a chance to win tickets to Burna's next concert in NYC. The event was free and followed health guidelines.
