“Jeun soke o, dem go dey jeun soke o”

In a concert dubbed “Unforgettable,” Nigerian Afro-fusion star Burna Boy, widely known as the “African Giant,” lived up to his moniker and delivered a performance worthy of its title. Opening with the fan-favourite “Gbona,” Burna Boy ignited the Guyana National Stadium with an electrifying set that transcended language and embraced culture.

‘Gbona’ is the Yoruba word for ‘hot’ and that’s what the ‘Ye’ artist served up.

“When the music enters your body,” Burna Boy belted in his signature laid-back vocals, a lyric that perfectly captured the atmosphere. Though the concert began close to midnight, the energy buzzed throughout Burna Boy’s hour-long set. He was a skilled storyteller, taking the audience on a journey that culminated in a rousing finale with another crowd-pleaser, “Last Last!”

The night wasn’t just about Burna Boy. Social media buzzed with positive reviews, with many praising not just the artist but the entire production.  “I wouldn’t call myself a die-hard fan,” one attendee, Temeica Prince, wrote on Facebook, “but Burna Boy and his team DELIVERED!”

Sponsors ENet, Hits and Jams Entertainment, and One Guyana were lauded for creating an “adrenaline-charged” experience.  “Congratulations on this!! MAJOR!!!” echoed Nick Yearwood on Instagram, reflecting the sentiment of many.

The “Unforgettable” concert wasn’t just a one-man show. The night boasted an impressive opening act line-up featuring regional stars Tanya Stephens, Nigy Boy, Timeka Marshall, Busy Signal, Aw Lyrical, and Zalchemi.

With its stellar performances, impressive sound design, and captivating aesthetics, the “Unforgettable” concert goes down as a landmark event for Guyana.  The night not only solidified Burna Boy’s status as a global force but also cemented Guyana’s growing reputation as a vibrant entertainment and cultural hub.
