At 12:15 am WAT on April 15, 2019, Nigerian artist, Burna Boy, performed at the Coachella Valley and Arts Music Festival 2019 that began on the night of April 12, 2019, and ended Sunday, April 14, 2019 (PDT).
As Pulse reported on how to live stream Coachella 2019 on Saturday, April 13, 2019, Burna Boy performed after Ariana Grande, Khalid, Bad Bunny, and Pusha T in the early hours of Monday, April 15, 2019, and it was streamed live on the Coachella YouTube page.
Like Eazi, who was also subject to a YouTube artist spotlight, Burna was backed up by a live band and a selection of male and female dancers. He was also dressed in a yellow multicolored, customizable Kenneth Ize trench coat and white trousers, presumably styled by his sister, Ronami Ogulu.
While on stage, Burna performed a selection of smash hits like, ‘Ye,’ ‘Dangote,’ ‘Tonight,’ ‘Killin Dem,’ ‘Soke,’On The Low,’ and others. During the performance of ‘Killin Dem,’ he thrilled the crowd with some impressive Zanku moves.
The album title, ‘African Giant’ is derived from his infamous objection at his name being spelled in small letters during the promo run for Coachella Valley and Arts Music Festival 2019.
For creative plaudits, Oluwaburna’s multi-city American Tour has also been tagged, ‘African Giant’ tour.
