With the release of his enormous breakout album, African Giant, Nigerian-bred Burna Boy is staking a claim as one of the biggest stars on the global music scene—a crossover sensation who refuses to compromise. Instead, he’s letting the world cross over to him.
New York monthly men’s magazine, GQ features Burna Boy in an exclusive interview which takes us a little back in time to his appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s ‘The Tonight Show‘, the events that ran up to the release of the African Giant album, his Grammy nomination and his momentous breakout on both local and international scale.
