I was at the Burna Boy show in Atlanta last night. Even though it was on a Tuesday and I had class the next morning, I didn’t wanna miss it. I figured his show would be awesome since his music consistently bops.
Ok. Ima start with the positive:
Hella people showed up. The opening act & DJ had a whole Afrobeats vibe going on so the mood in the venue was lovely (earlier on). It was black folks from all across the diaspora meeting in the exact same time & place for a Nigerian artist. And that, was dope. Also, his graphics were so cool to me. Props to whoever designed those.
But. Burna lowkey burned us. The show started at 8….he didn’t arrive until after 10:30. He wasn’t even in town when the show started. People left before he even got there and everyone else was pissed. I don’t know how many times I randomly heard “Where the fuck is Burna Boy.” That shit was a mess.
Once he got on stage, his performance was good. But at that point I had to force my eyes open out of sheer exhaustion (i.e.: momlife, doctoral student life, I be tired life.) Overall I’m still happy that I could see Burna live. My guy just needs to get his time management together.
I was still cute tho. 🙂
