The star - who's currently Number 1 on the Official Afrobeats Chart - makes history with the announcement

Burna Boy makes history as he announces his 2023 Love, Damini London Stadium show; a concert that'll make him the first-ever African artist to headline a UK stadium.

Promising a 'legendary' gig, Burna - who's currently Number 1 on the Official Afrobeats Chart with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever track Alone - will play the iconic London venue on Saturday June 3 2023.

It'll prove his biggest solo audience to date, too; with Burna Boy playing to a 60,000-strong crowd at West Ham Football Club's home ground next summer.

Announcing the news, Burna says: "London Stadium is going to be my fairground!  I’ve been told that I couldn’t achieve anything because of where I came from, I hope this can show people that when you have a dream it doesn’t matter where you’ve come from, your dream can come true.

"This is going to be legendary, it’s history and I can’t wait for you all to be a part of that."

Recently, Burna played headline shows to sold-out crowds at Wembley Arena, in November 2019, and at The O2 Arena, London in August 2021.

Burna Boy announces his London Stadium show in partnership with promoters Robomagic Live and Coko Bar; the latter being the leading independent promoter for all top African artists who perform throughout Europe.
