Burna Boy which is the only Nigerian artiste on the line-up had criticised the organisers in 2019 after he was billed alongside Mr Eazi, and others.

Burna Boy enjoyed a hugely successful 2022 with the release of his 6th album ‘Love, Damini’. His hit single ‘Last Last’ was one of the biggest Afrobeats songs of 2022 as it enjoyed massive international success.

Burna Boy previously performed at the Coachella in 2020 where readers might recall him throwing a fit over the small font used in writing his name in the artist lineup.

2023 Coachella will be headlined by Puetorican megastar Bad Bunny, K-pop girl group Blackpink, and American R&B artist Frank Ocean.

The Grammy-winner is the only Nigerian artist in the lineup as he continues to lead the global exportation of Afrobeats. With the international appeal of ‘Last Last’ and Burna Boy’s growing fame.
