Burna Boy has achieved a remarkable milestone, becoming the first artist to surpass 1 billion streams on Boomplay. This extraordinary feat has earned him the exclusive title of the platform’s ‘Platinum Club’ member.

Burna Boy’s latest project, “I Told Them,” thrust him into the spotlight, although it garnered mixed reviews due to some controversial comments about his afrobeats.

Despite the divisive reactions, Burna Boy’s dedicated fanbase, known as the outsiders, played a pivotal role. Their unwavering passion and support catapulted Burna Boy to set a new record on the Boomplay platform, solidifying his position as the platform’s sole artist with over 1 billion streams and the inaugural member of the Platinum Club.
