Burna Boy is going back on the road for a major headline tour.

'The African Giant Returns Tour' will kick off this August in Toronto and will see the Nigerian star playing live concerts across Canada, the United States, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.

The buzzing Nigerian artist recently dropped another banger, "Anybody," a Rexxie-produced single in which he sends a message to the naysayers, reminding them that "respect is reciprocal," and that he has no time for enemies.

Burna Boy also recently earned a nomination for the 2019 BET Awards under the "Best International Act" category alongside, Mr Eazi, AKA, Aya Nakamura, Dosseh, Dave and Giggs.
