I went to my very first O2 Arena concert guyssss! I had no plan to go for a UK show to be honest, I feel like shows in Lagos are so much fun and didn’t want to go to a UK show where people tend to be rather reserved, but when this free opportunity came up, I figured – why not?
2 days to Burna Boy’s concert, NHS gave out free tickets to his concert. I didn’t believe but by the time I got my QR Code I was like woahhh this is true – so I quickly shared the news with my friends and Twitter timeline – because as my people say: who no like awoof?
Fast forward to Friday, myself, my 2 siblings and my younger cousin are chilling in the Sky backstage thanks to my brother’s connect that upgraded our tickets! It was pretty nice back there, I must say enjoyment truly does suit me haha!
Then the show started with a fun hypeman and hypewoman, and supporting acts came up – Ruger & Midas the Jagaban!
Eventually Burna Boy arrived in a Spaceship and the show kicked off!
All performances were live – no backing tracks, he had an energetic choir and the band was super amazing! Omah Lay did a set in between Burna’s outfit changes too, he was so humble about this being his first time in London, bless him!
He brought out Rema – this was a highlight for me and most of the audience tbh, that guy is lovedddd!
All in all, it was an amazinggg experience – I put the videos from the event on my highlight tab on my Instagram page – check it out!
Oh and the energy in the O2 arena was off the radar – so many people were hyped and just having a swell time, totally loved it!
Many thanks to the NHS for giving me my first O2 Arena experience, and shout out to Burna Boy for an amazing show!
Till next time,
