“No wonder he’s giving them high blood pressure” — Reactions to Burna Boy’s latest achievement, which sees him beat Davido and Wizkid

Burna Boy, a Grammy Nobel prize musician, was the first Nigerian musician to deliver a sold-out show in Madison Square Garden in New York, grossing over N3 billion in ticket sales alone.


According to some social media users, Wizkid, Davido, and other musicians in the music industry have been irritated by this success.

Tickets varied in price from $80 to $2,125, with an average of $350. When the total available capacity of the arena, 20,789, is multiplied by $7,276,150, or nearly N3,022,003,379.50 at the current exchange rate of N415.33, the total amount raised is $7,276,150, or roughly N3,022,003,379.50.

Over 81,000 people from Nigeria, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada watched the unprecedented two-hour concert, dubbed “One Night in Space,” on YouTube.

Burna Boy has now joined the ranks of performers such as Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Adele, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Justin Bieber, and Mariah Carey who have sold out the world’s most iconic arena.

Burna Boy is said to be causing high blood pressure in other Nigerian musicians.

“Burna dey Tension the Industry,” wrote sharonjonah123.

“Odoguw dey give dem high blood pressure,” wrote kingranking007.

Very well deserved,” tbellz07 wrote. He has set a precedent for how a concert should be performed. “It’s all about the international standard.”

No wonder he doesn’t invite any artists because he doesn’t have a won share portion or need for middlemen drama,” private afa_ wrote.
