Nigerian a-list singers, media practitioners and few friends converged at WéRé House in Lekki, Lagos for Burna Boy’s forthcoming album “Outside” in a private listening party.
The album with 13 tracks is set to be released on all digital music platforms on the 26th of January under Atlantic Records.
Douglas Jekan of The Beat FM was the host of the day as he led a cheerful Burna Boy through a series of questions about the album.
Burna Boy revealed that every song on the album was inspired by something in his life, saying ‘Where I’m from’ as his favorite and most personal song.
In attendance was Burna Boy’s Grandfather, Benson Idonije, his mother and sister.
Celebrities like Davido, Phyno, Skales, Idia Aisien, Nonso Bassey, Odunsi The Engine, Idyl, Leriq, DJ Lambo, Chopstix and DJ Spinall and some influencers graced the event to support Burna Boy.
There was food and drinks for everyone even as Burna Boy’s favorite meal, Port Harcourt’s Boli and fish, was served from the trunk of a Peugeot 504 that was beautifully converted to a kitchen. The car’s plate number was noteworthy as it was the plate number of Burna Boy’s first car when he returned to Nigeria.
At the end of the event, Burna Boy took time to take pictures and stayed till the last minute when he left with everyone. There were wide smiles as people departed; a testament of the music that Burna Boy created on the ‘Outside’ album.
