Burna Boy Makes TIME’s 100 Most Influential People 2024

Grammy-winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu, aka Burna Boy, has been included in Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2024.

According to Daily Post, legendary Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo wrote Ogulu’s tribute on Time’s website.

She noted that Ogulu played a pivotal role in the global acceptance of African music.

“Burna Boy has made that vision [acceptance of African music] a global reality. His music draws from the rich well of Nigerian folk traditions, and he carries the torch lit by Fela Kuti. He is history in the making,” Kidjo wrote.

The Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People recognition honours individuals who have made a significant impact on the world through their art, activism, and cultural influence.

Recall that Burna Boy also recently secured a coveted spot on the inaugural Essence Magazine’s Sexiest Men Of The Moment list.
