Nigerian superstar brings his spectacular live show to Roskilde Festival. 

With afrobeat rhythms, edgy political lyrics and epic songs, the Nigerian superstar Burna Boy has conquered dance floors all over the world. As the grandson of none other than Fela Kuti’s manager, he grew up with his home country’s proud musical traditions. Today, he is a world ambassador for the afrobeat genre. 

Thirty-one-year-old Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu’s big international breakthrough came with the political and personal album African Giant, released in 2019. The name of the record is an expression of his status as a cultural and political lighthouse for the African diaspora. Burna Boy uses his personal platform politically and has established himself as a strong anti-colonial voice. 

Damini is a new-age international star, who is not afraid of talking about his own experiences and vulnerabilities. This was established in his sixth studio album released this year, Love, Damini, which is a powerful personal tale of learning to love himself. 

Burna Boy brings with him an impressive backlist to Roskilde Festival, which includes collaborations with the likes of Stormzy, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, Jorja Smith and fellow countryman Wizkid.  
You can look forward to experiencing this Nigerian superstar for a hip-swinging pop party that spans the boundaries of geography and genres when he steps onto Orange Stage with his impressive and spectacular live setup.
