Burna Boy's history-making feat is a testament to his status as the leading African artist globally as the superstar continues to record many African firsts.

Earlier in the year, Burna Boy made history when he became the first African artist to perform at the Grammy main ceremony after he shared the stage alongside 21 Savage and Brandy for a performance of his hit single 'Sittin' On Top Of The World'.

At the 66th Grammys, Burna Boy also became the first Nigerian artist to be nominated outside of the global categories after his song 'Sittin' On Top Of The World' got the nod for Best Melodic Rap Performance.

Burna Boy has kicked off 2024 on a stellar note with his guest appearance on the remix of Titom & Yuppe's 'Twala Bam' remix which made history by becoming the first South African lead song to reach the summit of TurnTable Top 100.
