Nigerian Super Star Burna Boy to perform at UEFA Champions League Final in Istanbul
Burna Boy is set to make history as the first-ever African artiste to perform in a Champions League final.
Burna Boy will be performing at the Champions League final in Istanbul alongside another amazing headliner following an official confirmation on Thursday, March 16.
Burna Boy who recently headlined at the NBA All-Star Halftime show will now take centre stage once more in sports, this time at the biggest club soccer event on the planet.
The confirmation was made via an official post on Thursday, March 16, in a clip that showed the Grammy-Award-winning superstar confirming that he will be performing some of his biggest hits at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey on June 10, 2023.
How much will Burna Boy earn from the Champions League final kick-off show
Following the announcement, fans have since taken to social media to congratulate the self-acclaimed ‘African giant’ as well as debate his performance fee for perhaps the biggest show of his illustrious career, with many asking the question, ‘how much exactly will he be paid for the show?’
To answer this question, it is pertinent to first understand what the artiste in question charges on average for an international show.
Recent reports have suggested that the ‘Last Last’ crooner charges at least $500,000 USD which is equivalent to N370 million for performance fees alongside a bucket list of requirements on his rider.
