For those needing an intro, Burna Boy is a Nigerian Afro-fusion singer and songwriter and he just turned 28 on July 2nd. Born Damini Ogulu, Burna Boy is currently one of the most successful artistes on the Nigerian music scene. To celebrate his birthday, family and friends gathered for a night of glitz and glam as they hosted the “African Giant” to a surprise private birthday dinner and we’ve got the exclusive official images.
Burna’s birthday dinner was attended by his grandparents, mother, his girl Stefflon Don, executives from Star (Nigerian Breweries), and industry friends like D’Banj, Korede Bello, Phyno, Kaffy, Olisa, Zlatan, DJ Lambo, Peedipicasso, Poco Lee, Toolz O, Slim case, VJ Adams, Moet Abebe, Jimmie, Efe Omoregbe and Chopstix.
