Nigerian artist Burna Boy, a torchbearer of Afrobeats, is poised to grace the grand opening of Kampala’s revamped Nakivubo War Memorial Stadium, a multi-purpose sports and entertainment arena in the heart of Uganda’s capital city.
The 32-year-old artist will be pocketing a substantial sum of up to $1 million for his performance at the multi-purpose stadium.
The stadium has been renovated by 40-year-old Ugandan businessman Hamis Kiggundu through the Ham Group of Companies.
Burna Boy, known for his electrifying performances, has become a sought-after international act, commanding fees ranging from $700,000 to $1 million for his appearances at global events in 2023.
His popularity has soared recently as he’s organized concerts and headlined numerous shows in the United States and Europe.
As one of Africa’s foremost musicians and among the highest-earning performers on the continent, Burna Boy has amassed a considerable fortune through his concerts and performances, cementing his status as one of Africa’s wealthiest musicians.
