The obviously excited Burna reacted to the news in a funny way Nigerian music is now taking a new dimension as it has enjoyed massive recognition from all parts of the world in recent times.
Musicians like Burna Boy are part of the lucky ones whose music have enjoyed great airplay in different countries. Just recently, the BET award winner was given a worthy mention by legendary English singer, Elton John, on his radio show.
