Watch Burna Boy Perform 'Anybody' and 'Collateral Damage' on 'The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon'

The 'African Giant' delivers another memorable late night appearance.

Grammy-nominated artist Burna Boy, appeared as the musical guest on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon yesterday, marking another standout late night appearance from the artist, following The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live from earlier this year.

Burna Boy performed a medley of his songs "Collateral Damage" and "Anybody" from his latest album African Giant. Opening with 'Collateral Damage," the artist asked audience members to raise their fists, describing the song as "protest music." After that he headed into an energetic rendition of 'Anybody," delivering the zanku and several "gbeses" during the performance.

Burna Boy has won several awards throughout the year, including "Best International Act" at the BET Awards and "Best African Act" at the MTV Europe Awards. Most recently he's been nominated for a Grammy in the "Best World Music" category for African Giant alongside Angelique Kidjo and more.

He's also collaborated with several artists, including fellow Nigerian artist Zlatan on the dance banger "Gbeku" and Stormzy on his latest track "Own It" also featuring Ed Sheeran.
