Burna Boy and Travis Scott Shut Down MSG

Renowned comedian and Chapelle’s Show creator, Dave Chappelle, pulled out all the stops for his 50th birthday celebration.

Launching his ‘It’s a Celebration B!%?#&$! Tour’ at the iconic Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, August 22, Chappelle surprised his audience by sharing the stage with Nigerian music legend Burna Boy and American rapper Travis Scott. The duo serenaded him with the birthday song and delivered electrifying surprise performances.

Burna Boy’s Controversial Remarks

In a recent interview on Apple Music, Burna Boy stirred controversy by asserting that Afrobeats lacks substance and claimed to have pioneered the Afro-fusion genre to create music with more depth.

These statements ignited a firestorm of reactions from celebrities and fans, with figures like Joey Akan, Pheelz, and Bizzle Osikoya vehemently opposing Burna Boy’s perspective, staunchly defending the Afrobeats genre. Some fans, however, argue that Afrobeats doesn’t need to conform to anyone’s standards to be considered good or enjoyable music.
