Watch Burna Boy Perform 'Anybody' on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The 'African Giant' continues to dominate the international scene.

The devil works hard but Burna Boy certainly works harder. Last night, the indomitable Nigerian artist appeared on the late night American talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! alongside Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie, who were promoting their new film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Of course, Burna could not leave before giving a stunning performance of "Anybody", the track from his 2019 album aptly entitled, African Giant.


Taking the stage with a vibrant live band and back-up vocalist, Burna Boy was completely at home as he serenaded the audience in a way only he can. What's consistent about Burna, beside his obvious talent, is how he continuously brings his authentic musical sound and never tries to alter it for Western audiences. You either fuck with him as he is or you don't.

Burna Boy is on a winning streak and we're so here for it. From making his debut at this year's Coachella, announcing his upcoming 'African Giant Returns Tour' (which will begin this August), taking home the BET award for Best International Act to having his own track "Ja Ara E" on Beyoncé's album, The Lion King: The Gift, the artist promises to keep his neck firmly on our necks all year. And who can hate on him for that?
