Watch: Burna Boy Chats To Trevor Noah About Being The First Nigerian To Sell Out MSG

The Grammy Award winning artist stopped by The Daily Show as he gears up to headline his sold out 'One Night In Space' show at Madison Square Garden.

Nigerian musical giant Burna Boystopped by The Daily Show this week to chat with South Africa's Trevor Noah. The cross-continental match-up of our dreams came as Burna gears up to be the first Nigerian artist to headline a show at New York City's Madison Square Garden, this Thursday, April 28th.

The singer kept his cool, calm, and collected demeanor as the two recapped the massive success Burna has achieved in recent years. Noah praised Burna and his fellow Internationally recognized countrymen, as he claimed, "One thing I've truly loved is how Nigerian artists have taken Africa to the world. You've blown up the continent. Everybody is trying to emulate what Nigerian artists are creating." And no truer words have been spoken. The 'B D'Or' crooner revealed that his Grammy Award-winning album ​Twice As Tall was created, largely, over Zoom, as a result of the global lockdown the COVID-19 pandemic burdened the world with.

Burna also proudly boasted the fact that his mother, Nigerian businesswoman Bose Ogulu is his manager. The singer smiled as he lightheartedly professed, "My mother has figured out some other way, where she makes me feel like it's ​my decisions." Noah laughed as he understands the temperament of an African mother.

Burna dropped by Tuesday's show as he gets ready to make his historic appearance at New York City's Madison Square Garden. The sold-out show is one leg of many, as the Nigerian singer tours North America and dominates global music charts.​
