Family, friends and fans gathered in LA for an unusual night with the African Giant. On Monday, OkayAfrica hosted an unforgettable listening party for Burna Boy’sforthcoming album African Giant at Adults Only in Los Angeles.
Friends, family and day one fans come out to celebrate with Burna in a lush space, decked out in floral details and customized “Burna bills.” The decor, led by Grace Bukunmi offered a unique, Lagos disco feel fit for the infectious energy permeating the room.
Attendees danced into the night, with Burna himself joining the crowd to hit the zanku, taking breaks in between to grab the mic and explain the inspiration behind each track.
Burna, with the help of Ghanaian artist Nana Kwabena on the turntables, also ran through several of his deep-cuts. Fellow Ghanaian DJ Mike Abrantiealso provided tunes throughout the night.
Tasty eats were provided by Kenfe Kitchen and drinks flowed all night long, courtesy of Hennessy.
