Last year was really good for BurnaBoy.
His Album “Africa Giant” was the biggest and most stream album in Africa and is been nominated for the 2020 Grammys.
This is certainly a big achievement for him. Off course every artiste dream is to get nominated for the Grammys and possibly win it.
Burna Boy preform more than any other African artistes, preforming over 200+ shows across cities in the world.
He played 70 shows across America and Europe, and 50 out of those shows were SOLD OUT.
Burna Boy releases 10+ videos in 2019 alone.
13 million plus monthly listeners on Spotify is no joke and that is the most by an African artiste ever.
He also recorded over 600 million music streams across board in the year 2019.
Burna Boy won Best African Act at the 2019 MTV Europen Music Awards and again won the Best International Act at the BET Awards 2019.
He received a plaque for Selling Out the SSE Wembley Arena, London during his African Giant Tour in 2019
He again won the African Artiste of the year at the Soundcity MVP Awards and again at the AFRIMMA 2019.
I don’t know how this means to you but if you are an artiste or promoter/online distributor etc, this should mean a lot to you.
There is a lot to be learnt from this statistics.
