Burna Boy makes TIME’s 100 Most Influential People of 2024


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

Legendary Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo wrote Ogulu’s tribute on Time’s website.

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