DaBaby Shares His Encounter With A Nigerian Who Almost Decked Him and Airport Officials 20

American rapper, DaBaby is trending on social media for different reasons.

The Rapper hopped on Instagram to share how he went through hell to get a last minute flight back to the U.S. Recall that Davido sent his Private Jet to get DaBaby to Nigeria for their fun and highly anticipated music video.

The fun and exciting shoot is over and DaBaby had to go to back to the States for business. He made a video of him in the plane and lamented about how he had to spend a lot of money just to board the flight.

This revelation wasn’t surprisingly enough to distract Nigerians form the fact that a passenger almost decked him on the plane. DaBaby unintentionally recorded a not so happy Nigerian while he was getting a shot of his assistant on the plane.

When he noticed the passenger wasn’t pleased, he immediately apologized and stopped his recording. He then made another video and explained what happened. According to him, he mistook him as one of his die hard fans, but he meant no disrespect

5 Times Burna Boy Has Shown He’s Bigger Than Wizkid and Davido

5 Times Burna Boy Has Shown He’s Bigger Than Wizkid and Davido 21

African Giant, Burna Boy has by far done an amazing job within a short period of time and is constantly putting Nigeria on the global map through Afrobeats.

5 Times Burna Boy Has Shown He’s Bigger Than Wizkid and Davido 

1. The Recording Academy’s Annual Grammy Award

In the history of Nigerian music, and by extension- African music, the Recording Academy’s Grammy Awards has so far been one of the most elusive peaks to break down. Nonetheless, Africans have collectively put in a lot of effort to refine the craft over the years to a globally acceptable standard.

Till today, Burna Boy is the only solo Afrobeats winner of the highly coveted Grammy Awards which he won in 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Burna’s greatness isn’t measured by this win alone, he was nominated for the Awards back to back, losing out to Veteran Angelique Kidjo at his first go, and eventually clinching the best Global Album Award for his “Twice As Tall” Album.

As much as Wizkid is the preferred poster boy for Afrobeats, having charted at No. 1 on the Billboard since 2016, Burna Boy has shown that he’s personally more invested in pushing the collective boundaries of Afrobeats.

So far, only one African superstar has been privileged with the huge honour of a performance at the annual Grammy Awards ceremony. In 2020, Burna Boy did not only clinch the Best Global Album category he also sealed his Grammy’s with an eclectic performance.

2. The Prestigious Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) Performance & Others

Barely weeks into his sold out Madison Square Garden event, Burna Boy was back in the USA, about to hold the record for another unprecedented performance in the history of Afrobeats.

Burna Boy closed out the BBMAs with another masterpiece performance that’s already got a lot of outsiders all over the world anticipating the new album. At the moment, he is equally the only Afrobeats frontliner to have been billed for a performance at the BRIT & BET AWARD ceremonies.

3. Madison Square Garden

Burna Boy’s Madison Square Garden event was very unprecedented in the history of Afrobeats. Popularly credited as one of the rarest performers ever produced by the now global genre.

Burna boy has proven with his sold out Madison Square Garden event that he’s currently the biggest artist in Afrobeats.

As much as the other two heavy weight African artists have chosen to turn the 02 into a second home by shutting it down with their events over the years, it is safe to say that none of them have made this much impact in North America.

4. Endless Global Collaborations

If there’s any Nigerian artist who’s contributed to more foreign projects than anyone, then it’s definitely Burna Boy who’s been credited on a lot of projects outside Afrobeats at a time when he wasn’t even getting the needed attention locally.

However, since his Outside Album dropped in 2018, the wheels have since turned around in his favour. Even before he became a certified headliner act, Burna Boy had already received credits for some appearances on some of the biggest album projects globally at the time.

5. Global Festival Tours

There is only one act in Africa big enough to organize his own festivals all over the world. From Africa, to Europe to North America, Burna Boy has consistently given his ever growing fan base a top tier performance at his super packed festival experiences, crowning it all with the highly coveted Madison Square Garden performance.

Only one Afrobeats superstar has gone on to far away Netherlands, organized their own festival and sell out a whole-ass arena in deep Europe, moving on to Amsterdam to repeat the same feat, before returning to Ireland, and then selling out arenas all over America.

Burna Boy is clearly on a space drift, planets ahead of everyone else in the game right now.
